Endearing pray

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

A beloved spot here in this hall where many lie down on the ground for a short pray but he had a more intense need of devotion, sitting down, a humble talk with God.

On the edge of light in a very dark part of the Meenakshi Temple, I call it the Butterball hall as next to this place people throw ghee butter balls to the statues of Gods.
There was a very weak light of a lamp to enlighten this scene anticipated with a high ISO.

A strong presence of believe and proud devoutness as an aspect of the daily life here, people are not ashamed to express it openly and natural, how many still dare to do in the world ?
