Religion is one of India's most popular tourist sites, bringing in thousands of visitors from all over the world every year. The desire for religious fulfillment is another motivation that leads to inner peace and happiness. Many people will visit any holy place. Some will be tourists who came for the experience and education, but most will be pilgrims who are there to perform their religious duties. In India, it's called a Tirth Yatra. This kind of travel has many positive and negative effects. The current study shows how some of these effects affect tourists. Emotional travel is related to religious tourism. India has many places, like Kurukshetra in Haryana, Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh, and many others. People from all over India visit the many religious tourist sites in north India to fulfill their religious needs. Some of them want to meet their God face-to-face, while others want the new experience of a spiritual journey. It's not unusual to travel for faith reasons. It's as old as faith. Around the world, there were many cultures that only traveled long distances for religious reasons. Compared to other research on religious tourism, the current study doesn't add much.
