Holy Places Around The World – Photo Essay

Through some compulsion I can’t explain, I find myself drawn to places of spiritual importance when I travel. It’s not that I’m particularly spiritual, I’m not; instead I think it’s a desire to get to know people on a deeper level. Whatever the reason, these places of holy importance are a big part of my travel experience which is why I’m glad the theme for #FriFotos this week is HOLY PLACES. Here are some of my most favorite holy places I’ve visited on my travels.
