Pilgrimage is a journey to a distant sacred goal, it is found in all the great religions of the world. It is a journey both outwards to places and for spiritual improvement. It can express past evils or the search for a good future. The pilgrim may pursue spiritual need in the sacred sites of a particular faith or seek a miracle through God or a saint. Throughout the world pilgrims move invisibly in huge numbers among the tourists of today.

One way to fully experience the sacredness of the universe is to become a pilgrim.  Since the past time people have sought out places of revelation in the landscape, on holy mountains, by curative springs, at oracular caverns and the shrines of saints.

Pilgrimage is currently a popular term used to refer to almost any excursion to a place that has special meaning.

Pilgrimage is one way to search for the deeper meaning and purpose in our lives and to try and get a deeper and spiritual understanding of god. Through pilgrimage the spirit is renewed and the general outlook becomes uplifted. Changing the way we look at everyday life. By visiting sacred sites pilgrims are able to express themselves in powerful ways and have a direct personal experience of holiness. This experience is the power of pilgrimage and why it is important in religions
