Islam is the world's second most prolific religion, after Christianity. Several sites built in the name of Islam are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, the Hajj, is one of the largest human migrations.

As Muslim congregations have had a significant role in most communities where they are present, a traveler will learn much from visiting a local mosque, regardless of belief. Islamic architecture is amongst the most meticulous and ornate in the world.
