Working Together for Excellence and Enjoyment


To complete your unit of work on Hinduism, we need to consider the importance of pilgrimage to the Hindu faith. Watch the following video which explains what pilgrimage means and the types of pilgrimages that Hindus undertake and why.


The River Ganges is especially important as a place of pilgrimage for Hindus. Play the following power point to learn more about the River Ganges.

When you have watched the video and the power point, complete some research of your own about Hindu pilgrimage and the River Ganges. You can present your research however you wish. You may wish to consider some of the following points:

  • where the River Ganges is
  • interesting facts about the river
  • what Hindus do when they visit the river
  • why people bathe in the river

 Finally, consider the key question: 'Does going on a pilgrimage show a commitment to God?'
