The Travels of ibn Battuta by Tim Mackintosh-Smith

The travels of ibn Battuta by Tim Mackintosh: Ibn Battuta was physically a weak personality and was very lazy person. All the near and dear ones were tired of him and he was not considered any useful or reliable person. He roamed about his native town Tangier all the day and did nothing. The fate was smiling at him and he was destined to create history for him and his native country.

Ibn Battuta was the great biographer, sketchy historian and ethnographer. He started his journey when he was only nineteen years old. He did not know then that this journey would bring him everlasting fame and popularity for him in the entire world. His first journey was purely for the religious purposes. As was the custom among the followers of Islam, he decided to go on pilgrimage from Tangier to Mecca, the holy city of the Muslims.
