A year after the death of Marco Polo another passionate traveler embarked on a tour to Africa and Asia. He traveled 75000 miles much more than the famous explorer Marco Polo.

Ibn Battuta started his journey to Mecca to perform Hajj. He wanted to learn more about Islamic law, so he left his hometown. He studies in Mecca for a while and then he sailed down the east coast of Africa.

Sultan was a hospitable person so; he welcomed Ibn Battuta with lots of gifts and money. The gifts and money was a form of hospitality at that time, and wherever Ibn Battuta went, he was welcomed by the locals.

Ibn Battuta’s traveling journey was full of adventures. Ibn Battuta was arrested by Sultan during his stay in India. It was the time when a rebellion broke out, and Sultan grew suspicious of the people around him. Ibn Battuta was serving as a judge, so he was also arrested. He went to Delhi after getting released, but Sultan called him back and appointed him as the ambassador to the emperor of China. He was made responsible for taking the shiploads to the Yuan emperor. In 1352 when Ibn Battuta was heading towards China, he was shipwrecked.


After exploring the world and learning more about the law, he came back to his hometown Tangier.
