- Religious Tourism is one of the important pillars in building a community without ethnic, racial, religious and inter-group boundaries. Besakih Temple in Bali is an example of a Hindu sacred place of worship that also provides a place of worship for adherents of other religions, such as mosques and churches. In this location, there is no religious fanaticism. The study aims to examine the positive impact of religious tourism in building harmony of life towards deradicalization and religious pluralism. The study method uses a multi-case qualitative approach to adjoining religious tourism places of worship in several regions. Studies find that multi-religious and multi-ethnic religious tourists mingle in tourism activities. Muslim tourists blend peacefully with other religious followers. They feel as one of God's people. Social insecurity in the plurality of religions and the cause of religious radicalism does not occur at all in religious tourism areas. This finding proves the solidity of religious harmony that leads to the process of the formation of deradicalization and pluralism, which actually leads to the formation of a society living peacefully in a religious life.
