A place known for its stories of kingdom, giant structures and presence of God, Egypt definitely cannot be missed when we are discussing spirituality. Maybe due to the excessiveness of sand, maybe due to pyramid, or maybe due to something else, whatever it is, I am sure you will return home after hearing from God. The people there believe they still talk to god and can teach people to do so. I can’t really confirm their authenticity. However, Egypt is a place worth visiting. If not witnessing, the place, the pyramid, the huge structures, the prayers, and the belief will definitely drive your closer to god.

It’s spirituality. You will find numerous monks on your way teaching several lessons of life and after death. There are various books written on spirituality especially from this part of the world. But why do you need books if you can travel here and get first hand knowledge by teachers in the ashrams.

Along with a rich religious history, this placeMecca in Saudi Arabia can also be termed as continent’s capital of literature, culture, and arts. So, there are several reasons to visit Italy. Select any one. How about exploring the remnants of greatest kingdom in history?

According to the religion, every Muslim man (if he can physically travel) must visit the holy place of Mecca, at least once in his lifetime.
