The Strange Offerings Found In These Temples Of India


The tradition of offering offerings to God has been going on in India since ancient times. Devotees offer offerings to God to please their deity and fulfill their wishes. And after that, the devotee receives that offering. Because the blessings of God are absorbed in that offering. According to Hindu religion, whenever a devotee goes to the temple, then he definitely brings the offerings for God. Generally, when we hear the name of offerings, then we think of sweets, coconut, jaggery, Mishri, Fox Nut (Makhana) and Bundi. But in a few temples of India, different types of offerings are given. And in some temples, such offerings are given, which you cannot even imagine. Today, we will talk about some temples, where the offerings can surprise you.
