Some of these sites are considered "sacred" due to natural landscape formations (visually important volcanic peaks, caves from whence issue "holy" springs, ancient groves of trees, etc.) and some are "sacred" because of the architectural works which have been erected on them. Some of these architectural sites have been placed according to the principles of geomancy or ley lines or are constructed according to rules of sacred geometry. Others are simply naive architectural expressions of a belief in the metaphysical world. A few consist of nothing more than a couple of choice astro-calendrical devices arrayed in a cemetery (i am thinking here of the Masonic sundials of Scotland).
As a far-ranging and frequent traveller, i would like to learn about places to which i can make pilgrimages...if that is the proper term. I will post a few of my favourite sites here (most of them "roadside vernacular" in style) and i hope others will do likewise. Perhaps in time we can arrange to meet at some of these wonderful places...
