Synopsis: For over 1300 years the hajj or pilgrimmage to Mecca - a principle requirement of the Islamic faith - has been one of the world's great annual events. It had, in addition, a huge impact on the development of safe passage by land and of regular seaborne passenger traffic in the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf. The political, religious, social and economic aspects of the annual Islamic pilgrimage to the Holy Cities of the Hijaz are examined in this text. The author draws particularly on the experience of Indian Muslims from the Mughal period onward.
