This looks familiar to me. Were you on the rock where the priest summons Garuda (lammergeiers I think) with food. Rice that he then mixes and hands out to the pilgrims. The legend being that they have flown down from the Himalayas.

@grouser: No grouser. I have been to that Temple some 56 years back when I was in school. Now I hear that the birds have stopped coming..I have seen the birds...such beautiful ones, taking sweet rice from the priest's hand . This one is a totally different hill in the opposite direction.

Sam from Chennai, India

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

No not me, the poor pilgrims. I asked him if he had had a good days work and he gave me a big grin and flashed a wad of rupees.

6 Jul 2018 9:11pm

@grouser: Theer are many who are genuine ones( I mean the Priests ) and many who fleece. But compared with the North, here in South, very few who demand money!!
