This research is an endeavor to assess the Hindu religious motivations in Kashmir valley (in India). Using a quantitative research approach, 267 Hindu pilgrims in Kashmir valley were asked to complete questionnaire to carry out this study. One sample t test and linear correlation modus operandi were introduced for testing assumptions of the study. It is evident from the study context that for centuries, the Kashmir valley has cultivated the religious history of the Hindu faith, which is palpable from the many sacred Hindu sites across the Valley. The study results revealed that the Kashmir valley is a significantly important destination for wellbeing, spirituality and the holy atmosphere of Hindus whereas ‘sacred occasions’ are of average importance for them. All religious motivations display a considerable extent of variance in the results and overall there is significant association with pilgrims’ demographics.
