It’s hazardous visiting temples in India.  You probably won’t suffer physical harm – but your pocketbook is in danger.  At every turn somebody is trying to liberate a few rupees from your pocketbook.  In many ways – the monks are the worst.  On one occasion, I walked around the corner just in time to get a ‘drive-by dotting’ – then had the monk demand a day’s wages for the honor.  I was smart enough to keep my distance from this fella – who apparently was selling oil anointing.

This guy was in Chamundeshwari Temple at the top of Chamundi Hill – one of the sacred hills in India.
