Religion in recent years has played a major role in the growth of tourism. Aside pilgrimages and religious structures, mountains and rivers for prayers have increased tourist arrivals in various countries blessed to have them.
Jetsanza.com has noted that domestic tourism in Ghana for religious activities is on the rise. There is a higher percentage of Christians in Ghana than the other religions. In Ghana, most Christians attributes sickness, retrogression, and worst stuff to Satanic manipulations. Christians therefore love to pray especially at designated places called Prayer Mountains.
All these prayer mountains house prayer camps where people stay for days until they receive answers to their prayers or get their problems solved.
