Meet other believers and follow in the footsteps…

When going on a religious trip or tour, you get the fantastic opportunity to meet fellow believers and make new friends.  Going on such a trip with your friends or a special group of people are memories made for life and it’s an incredible experience

These trips often not only focus on the religious part of the destination but also the historical and cultural heritage.  You’ll experience the cuisine and do sightseeing as well.

6 of the most visited religious places in the world are:

  • Mecca in Saudi Arabia
  • The Vatican City in Italy
  • Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico City in Mexico
  • Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France
  • Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi, India
  • The Wailing Wall or Western Wall (known in Islam as the Buraq Wall) in Jerusalem, Israel

Jerusalem and the whole of Israel are definitely seen as one of the most sacred places in the world.  With Mount Sinai in Egypt and The Jordan also being favorites amongst travelers.

St George Monastery

The Monastery of Saints John and George of Choziba is also best known as Saint George Monastery in Wadi Qelt (Arabic: دير القديس جورج‎) or simply the Monastery of Choziba.  It is located in Wadi Qelt, in the eastern West Bank, Jerusalem.

The religious believe connected to this very impressive building:
  • “It is reached by a pedestrian bridge across Wadi Qelt, which many believe to be Psalm 23‘s “valley of the shadow of death”.  The valley parallels the old Roman road to Jericho, the backdrop for the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29–37). The monastery is open to pilgrims and visitors.” – Wikipedia

The monastery is open to the public daily (except on Sundays and certain holidays).

However in reference to our Travel Tip above, here is a strict dress code. No shorts for men; no trousers of any sort for women (women must wear a long skirt) and should wear a modest top.
