Pilgrimages have from time immemorial been recognized as spiritually refreshing journeys with a religious course. But like everything else, man has learnt to hit two or eight birds with a single snap of his catapult! Pilgrimages have become more than just spiritual voyages to social and business networking events as well a chance to explore other destinations en route.
