Seeking churches - the pilgrimage begins

So after receiving a good idea from Peas, to document the churches in Grahamstown, over and above the general documentation of this place, I set foot onto the roads today and started my search for the 40-something 56 (thanks Alex)churches close to 100 religious places of worship scattered around the area.

This task is not as easy as it sounds, and I walked a couple of hours from one end of town to the other (yes I know it sounds fast, but this place IS small) only documenting 10 religious structures, and getting stuck in a Herbal Healing shop looking at snake and Jackal skins...

On the list thus far is the Hindu Mandir, Trinity Church, Grahamstown Baptist Church, His People Christian Church, St. Clement's Anglican Church, River of Life Church, Commemoration Methodist Church, St.Patrick's Catholic Church, Chirst Church, and the former Synagogue which is now and attorneys office. You can view all images on my flickr set.

Next batch of pics coming soon, need to organize me a map of this place to find more churches...also keep an eye on the general Grahamstown flickr set for newbies.

    Awesome, awesome pics Pflaume! Impressive, hiking round GTown all in the name of church pilgrammage.

    I was very struck by how pretty GTown was on my arrival there. None of the Rhodents friends I knew before you guys had told me how lovely and church-filled the town was. (I just heard stories of debauchery, which isn't half wrong, let's face it. :) But I thought GTown was just beautiful. And the churches have so much to do with this.
    Well done dear, these pics are sensational.
