My response to Carpe Diem #1737 Introduction to a month full of devotion: Adam’s Peak

We have started a new month of prompts entitled ‘An Act of Devotion’ on the familiar theme of pilgrimages. Today we’re visiting Adam’s Peak in Sri Lanka, a 2243m conical mountain, which is also known as Sri Pada, which translates as ‘Sacred Foot’: Buddhists believe it is the footprint of Buddha;  Hindus that it’s the footprint of Shiva; and Muslims and Christians that it’s the footprint of Adam.

  1. I’m so sorry if this is a duplicate comment. I never know if WordPress has sent my comments to a moderation queue or just into limbo forever.
    I can certainly understand why people would want to visit this beautiful place.
