Adam’s Peak Sri Lanka


All four major religions of Sri Lanka claim Adam’s Peak as a holy mountain. Buddhists call the mountain Sri Pada (the sacred footprint) and say it was visited by the Gautama Buddha himself.  To Hindus, the peak called Shivan Adipatham ( ‘ the creative dance of Shiva’) preserves Lord Shiva’s footprint.  Muslims insist it is the place where Adam first set foot on earth and Roman Catholics say the footprint impressed in the boulder at the summit in that of St. Thomas, the early Christian apostle who preached in South India.
