Religious electricity in the air ....


Another shot from these pilgrims preparing the religious mood before climbing up to the temple to worship Dhandapani Murugan on the hill in Pallani. Climbing all these steps to the top is already quite a penance, I endured that at least four times , barefooted, breathing heavily and sweat running over your back. Pallani is indeed the oven of Tamil Nadu, no wind, enclosed by the mountains of Kodaikanal. A unique place, no foreign tourists here to remind you, becoming totally one with your surroundings, I love this place and had some very fine encounters here outside town.

One is hold to prevent from falling as he was fainting, a sensational act of believe.
I think this performance was no new for the old man on the right.
