A description of the experience
Paul Devereux – Earth Mysteries
The Hindu pilgrim who visits a sacred area follows a map that traces out faithscapes there. So, for instance, pilgrims to Chitrakut can obtain a special map that depicts various symbolic representations of the topography.
The Celts also invested their landscapes with myth. A relic of this is the pagan Celtic Irish text, the Dindsenchas “The Lord of Places”.
