I want to travel, to learn spirituality belief of many people at particular region. As the values are attached with particular belief with respective region and religion. India is land of diversification, you will find large number of cult practices and they follow very strict regime. India offers abode to spiritual tourism for all sects like Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Christianity, Jewish. Hinduism, etc. The Vedic culture has deep roots in India. In fact Vedas, Purana and Upanishads are holy scriptures which forms the basis of civilization.
Its surprising that Indian scriptures written millions of years back holds all details of evolution of man kind, their development and dissolution of the evolution. The intellectual verses, hymns have manifold knowledge of karma, birth, rebirth, reincarnation etc are topics of interest. With every temple, there is interesting folklore associated which makes the importance of temple even more and gives us reason to have faith in them.
Seeing seers and hermits doing all sort of typical worships, prayers and noticing them performing some amazing rituals makes me petrified and amused.
To begin my spiritual tourism I would prefer southern India as it fascinates me very much, mostly temples are built beautifully, magnificently stone carved and adorned with gold and silver work and craftsmanship and highly sophisticated architecture. Besides, structural beauty, deities of Goddess and Gods are immensely beautiful and catches the attention very easily. The customs of shrine worship differ from temple to temple as I have heard. People traveling from far-off places pays their respect with lots of devotion and belief.Many are being heard of giving thousands and lakhs of money or gold in temples to revere the deities.
My main motive to travel south is to visit as many temples I can to get blessed by Gods and to learn customs and understand the reason for the belief of people.
