Pilgrimage places anthropological works on a privileged platform for
religious studies. The origin of built environment sets apart a platform
for worship. It contains the dichotomy of life and death, striving towards
the spirit of a dead that may or may not be religious. It is a soul
searching process, a coming to terms with hopes and disillusions. Human
situations in the flow of globalised urban areas draw together primal
human search and economic considerations. The sacred and the profane, the
belief in miracles and the management of both, necessitate fresh search of
urban pilgrimage.
