Introduction
 
All mankind needs purification of the body, mind and the soul. To achieve the same pilgrimage holidays have been designed. The secularism of India and the variety of religions followed by the people of the country are amazing. The faith reflected in the chanting of 'Om', 'Budham Sharanam Gachami' all remind us of the Almighty and focus on the gospel of peace and love for humanity.
Pilgrimage tourism in India is extremely popular. Great religions like Hinduism, Buddhism and other religion have originated on the Indian soil.
