The Chamundeeswari temple is located on a hill in the vicinity of Mysore. Chamundeeswari the tutelary deity of the Mysore Maharajas has been held in reverence for centuries. Every week the god is taken out of the temple for a procession around the temple. Even Buddhists monks are seen there, and they give money to the Hindu gods

I went with a group of indian tourists to visit all the sites around Sri sailam. This Nandi, Shiva's mount, was on top of a hill. Everybody going there was doing the same thin, I was wondering what it was. A lovely lady asked what they were doing, the answer came : "saying hello to god".

Ayappas pilgrims waiting for their train in the Tirupati train station. You can come across those pilgrims in Southern India from November to February. The pilgrimage takes place in Sabarimala, Kerala. What they carry on their head is called Irumudi, a holy bundle, they can't put it on the ground.
