Nandi-Puja in the depth of winter

Before the puja could be performed on January 29th Nandi had to be freed from an almost three meter thick duvet made of snow…

In bright sunshine, the pilgrims made their way up to the temple through a winter landscape covered in deep snow. On approaching Nandi, only his ears and horns were visible from behind the snow. The worship of Nandi in this winter environment is a very special experience – the images only convey a small part of it all!
