Indonesian Muslim pilgrims pray at the tomb of Sunan Kalijaga on December 15, 2013 in Demak, Central Java, Indonesia. Every day Muslim pilgrims make the trip to the tomb of Sunan Kalijaga who was one of the "nine saints" of the Islam and is believed to be one of the pioneers of the Muslim faith. Many of those traveling are in search for improvements in health, prosperity and fortune in employment. The pilgrimage is becoming increasingly popular, which many see as a significant reflection on Indonesia's ever changing religious landscape.
