There are many places that Christian pilgrims can visit, but three main
destinations attract greater number of visitors. Jerusalem began to
attract pilgrims in the fourth century after the famous pilgrimage of
St. Helene and her discovery of true Cross. Rome attracted pilgrims as
it has the Vatican City and many sites of the deaths of early martyrs
like Saint Peter and Saint Paul. Also, Santiago de Compostela is
attracting considerable number of pilgrims to the present time, often
going on foot over weeks or months. Pilgrimage in Judaism had been developed with the passing centuries.
Ancient Judaism had not seen the same pilgrimage practiced today by
Jews, i.e. going to the “western wall” three times a year. hindus pilgrimages have a difference from the others, Lots of Hindu customs, traditions, and beliefs differ from region to region and climate conditions.
