The Blessing

Madurai

She bends her head to receive the blessings of the elephant.
Notice
- the wasti or white loincloth men are wearing, required to enter the sanctorum at the inner of the temple.
- the good smelling Jasmine flowers in the hair of the ladies bought in the morning by their husband.
- the classical sari of the elder lady and the more modern outfit of the younger one based on Muslim style clothings still with this fine feminin touch of the scarf.
-barefoot, shoes or sandals are not allowed here, neither any leather stuff, lately less controled. The sandals are kept in a depository outside the temple, this year free from any charge but they always expect a few roepies for safekeeping, you get a numbered ticket.


other sizes: small medium original
