Cultural tourism is all about acknowledging the indigenous communities of any geographical locale and understanding its cultural values and importance.
The simplest words to explain religious tourism is departing on pilgrimage or carrying on missionary activities linked to a common motive. Religious tourism is where small or large groups of people embark on long journeys to holy places around the world. Each and every place of religious significance like Varanasi in India or Jerusalem in Israel or say Mecca, Saudi Arabia are host of huge numbers of tourists all-round the year. It is believed that temples, churches or mosques here help seek oneness with the Almighty!
