With its landscape dotted with myriads of pilgrimage sites, India is the perfect place when it comes to seeking peace. I was thinking to start on a tour and spend my holiday in a placid and quiet atmosphere to relax completely. Can anybody suggest me some of such tranquil, spiritual places in India.....

India is a religious land. Since the dawn of civilization, India has been the birthplace of many religions. Therefore the country proudly boasts a number of pilgrim destinations. Rich in legends the country has a number of temples, mosques, monasteries, churches and gurdwaras which attracts a number of devotees. Haridwar is one such destination. Haridwar is considered as the gateway to the four pilgrimages in the Uttrakhand region. Haridwar is blessed by the trinity of Lord Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma and is also one of the major Shaktipeethas. Since ages a trip to Haridwar has purified the mind, the body and the soul.

I would propose the Mokambigai Devi temple as I understand that it is the only temple with the manifestation of Sakthi, Saraswathy and Mahaletchumy. The Mookambika Devi temple is dedicated to Mookambika Devi, is one of the most prominent shrines for people in the state of Karnataka and Kerala, India. Located at a distance of 147 km from Mangalore in the picturesque surroundings presented by the banks of the river Sauparnika and the lush green Kodachadri hill, the temple attracts millions of pilgrims every year. The temple holds immense relevance for the devotees as it is associated with revered Hindu saint and Vedic scholar Adi Shankara. It is believed that Adi Shankara perceived the idea of having a Mookambika Devi temple at Kollur and himself installed the idol of deity in the temple some 1200 years ago. People have high faith in Mookambika Devi Temple as Goddess Mookambika is regarded as a manifestation of Shakti, Saraswathi and Mahalakshmi. In fact Temple of Mookambika Devi is one of the Seven Muktistala pilgrimage sites in Karnataka which are Kollur, Udupi, Subrahmanya, Kumbasi, Kodeshwara, Sankaranarayana and Gokarna. The Mookambika Devi Temple stands on a spur of the Kodachadri peak. The deity is in the form of Jyotir-Linga incorporating both Shiva and Shakti. The Panchaloha image five element mixed metal of the Goddess on Shree Chakra is stated to have been consecrated by Adi Shankaracharya during his visit to this place. There is an exquisite sculpture of Panchamukha Ganesha here. Kollur is regarded as one of the Seven Muktistala pilgrimage sites, of Parashurama Kshetra, in Karnataka which are Kollur , Udupi, Subrahmanya, Kumbasi, Kodeshwara, Sankaranarayana and Gokarna. Legend: It is believed that Sri Adi Shankaracharya had a vision of Sri Mookambika Devi and he installed the deity here.The story goes like this. Adi Shankara mediated at Kudajadri hills and Devi was incarnated before him asking for his wish. He revealed his wish to incorporate devi to a place in Kerala to worship where he wanted. Devi agreed and put forward a challenge that she will follow Shankara and he should not look back until he reaches his destination. But to test Shankara devi deliberately paused and when he couldn t hear Devi s anklets,Shankara suddenly turned. Devi then stopped following him and asked Shankara to install her vigraha as he sees her. Kollur was also a part of ancient Kerala which stretched from Gokarna to Kanyakumari
