("Dandi" - means full body contact on the ground & they stretch their hand & legs & mark the span after which again they stretch on the ground from immediately the marked end point of their stretched fingers...)

You have captured a very interesting building, Ayan, and an interesting aspect of the local culture too.The devotees are captured in three different positions, which illustrate the action well and the temple provides just the right context. regards kevin
