ASP.NET routing enables you to use URLs that do not have to map to specific files in a Web site.

Routing is pretty much rewriting but not necessarily the same. In ASP.NET routing, you can define URL patterns that map to request-handler files, but that do not necessarily include the names of those files in the URL. In addition, you can include placeholders in a URL pattern so that variable data can be passed to the request handler without requiring a query string.
