Places of Pilgrimage - Amazing Maharashtra

Places of Pilgrimage

Maharashtra has a long tradition of tolerance and interaction with different religious faiths. To the south lies the basin of the Godavari, and the territory from Nashik to Nanded which is regarded as sacred. A majority of saints and poets were from here. Trimbakeshwar, the place from where the Godavari originates has a sanctity of its own. Nanded is a pilgrim point for the Sikhs as it has a mausoleum of Guru Gobind Singh.

Besides Haji Ali, Haji Malang, Churches of Bassein and Mumbai, Syngogues of Pen and Alibag, Jain and Buddhist temples, Maharashtra alone has five of the twelve Jyotirlingas. Maharashtra embodied the cultural and religious influence of the northern Aryans and southern Dravidians. Thus both Vaishnavism and Shaivism flourished in the region. Shaivism extended its ambit to worship Ganesh, son of Lord Shiva. In fact the elephant headed god is one of the most popular deities worshipped by the people in Maharashtra.

The advent Varkari Sampradaya has inspired lakhs of people for centuries to realize god and taught them that no barriers of caste, creed and sex obstruct the path of the realization of God through devotion. Even today people visit these places with great faith and participate in Wari and Dindi.
