Description

Pilgrimage-ritual visit to holy places-is an essential part of a votary’s life in every religion. It is even more so in Hinduism. The places of pilgrimage in India are legion. So also the books concerning them.

However, there is a great need to get the essential information about some of the more important (and popular) centres of pilgrimage, in a concise and readable form. This book is a humble attempt in that direction. One word of caution! This is not a handbook or guide to the pilgrim centres! Its purpose is only to give general information about them.
