It’s the time of year for top 10 lists, and The Lonely Planet has come out with a very interesting one. The top ten holiest places for spiritual experiences.

1. IFE, NIGERIA

The Yoruba people believe this is where the world was created…the universe’s first city.

2. JERUSALEM

The city is holy for three faiths Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

3. TEMPLE OF SOMNATH, GUJARAT, INDIA

Hindu faithful believe the temple witnessed the creation of the universe.

4. MOUNT KENYA, KENYA

In addition to being Africa’s second-highest mountain, Kenya’s most populous tribe, the Kikuyu, believe a supreme deityresides atop the mountain.

5. MOUNT KAILASH, TIBET

Mighty Kailash is four-times sacred. For Buddhists it’s the home of vengeful Demchok; it’s where the founder of Jainism attained nirvana; it’s the seat of all power for the pre-Buddhist faith; and for Hindus it’s the home of Shiva, the destroyer.
