At a shrine, an unholy sight

This clutter at the entrance reflects a throng of pilgrims visiting the Kukke Subramanya hill temple in Karnataka. You get to see this sight, disorderly and rather unholy, at the entrance of Hindu shrines, where devotees leave their footwear at the door before they enter the temple.
My post for Shadow Shot Sunday.


  1. I saw the title to your post before the photo came into view, and I couldn't imagine what "unholy sight" I was about to see!


    Shadows above and shadows below,
    Shadows that blaze and shadows that glow;
    Shadows outside and shadows indoors,
    Shadows on trees and shadows on floors;
    Everywhere shadows calling my name,
    Everywhere shadows no one can tame.
