Write a case study on an important sacred site from one of the world’s major religious traditions located anywhere in the world.

No archeological sites from historical or extinct traditions, e.g., Angkor Wat.
An excellent case study will include: The religious, historical and cultural background of the site in its geographical context; a description of its architectural features, significance and style. It should contain an analysis of the current significance of the site to the faithful in light of the concepts covered in class. Finally, discuss in detail core/major rituals, practices and/or festivals that regularly occur here.
