This chapter provides a broad introduction to pilgrimage on Java. The aim is to familiarize the reader with Javanese traditions of learning about self and society through travel. To illustrate this, the ethnographic focus is on a group of pilgrims who visit the sacred site of a local ancestor to learn more about themselves and the ancient Sundanese kingdom of Pajajaran.
