Pechiamman Temple

Madurai

I keep coming back to this small but beautiful and popular temple of a Lady-God in the middle of a poor area.

Everything here is so evident and peaceful, people don't wonder about you. They step in this temple for a little pray and then they go on to their work.

Here you see a small worship place of the planets:
The Sun, the Moon, MANGAL - Mars, SHANI - Saturn, BUDHA - Mercury, BRIHASPATI - Jupiter, SUKRA - Venus, RAHU - Dragon's Head, KETU - Dragon's Tail.
While praying you walk around these Gods several times and then you put some red powder on your head like this man does.
