Clockwise:
A massive prayer wheel being spun at Tibetan refugee camp in central Nepal. People believe that by setting the prayer wheel in motion, praying is done automatically.

Counter-clockwise:
Mekka, from the movie “Samsara” (2011). The Hajj (“pilmigrage” to Mecca) is one of the five pillars of Islam and comprehends “Tawaf Al-Ifada” (“circumambulation” around the Kaaba, starting from the black stone called “al-Ḥajar al-‘Aswad”).
