Buddhism Temple

I had an opportunity to travel around the world and visit some religious places. Today I visited the Thailand Bangkok Temple. This place is a buddhist temple. It was lit by candle light.

Shwedagon Pagoda

Today I visited the Shwedagon Pagoda. In this place, there are strands of Buddha's hair and other holy relics. It is covered in hundreds of gold plates.

The River Jordan

Today I got to see The River Jordan. Apparently John the Baptist baptized Jesus in the river. This is also where Jesus fled to of being accused of stoning Jerusalem.

Mosaic in Jerusalem

Today I visited Jerusalem. Jerusalem is believed to be the site of some of Jesus's teaching and the Last Supper. It is also believed that he was crucified on a nearby hill.

Judaism

The Western Wall

Today I visited the Western Wall or Kotel. It is an ancient limestone wall is Jerusalem. It is considered holy because of it's connection to the Temple Mount. It is the holiest place that Jews are permitted to pray at.

Varanasi

Today I visited Varanasi. It is one of the major pilgrim cities in Hinduism. But Varanasi is considered the holiest ancient site and it is considered the most sacred place of pilgrimage for Hindus.

Tirumala Hill

Today I visited Tirumala Hill. It has seven peaks which represents the seven heads of Adisesha. Each peak has a name and there is a temple on the seventh peak. The temple is called the Temple of Seven Hills.

Kaaba

Today I visited Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is believed that this cuboid figure was made by Abraham and his son Ishmael. It is one of the holiest places in Islam.

Today I visited Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina. The Prophet Muhammad is buried here under the green dome. Caliphs Umar and Abu Bakr are also said to be buried in the Masjid al-Nabawi.
