Abstract

This chapter analyses accounts of two travellers/traders (Persian and Moroccan) who visited Śrī Pāda (Adam's Peak) in Sri Lanka. Sulayman al-Tajir from Persia in the mid 9th century and Ibn Battuta from Morocco in the fourteenth century made the pilgrimage to Śrī Pāda. The chapter addresses issues raised by them and examines relevance of Śrī Pāda as a sacred site to many religions.
