Raam Duwara temple in Shahpura Bhilwara

An annual celebration to commemorate the anniversary of the founding of the Hindu temple in the town over 2650 years ago. The current Guru was in attendance in the upper level of the temple. There were thousands of people in the gardens. Sara and I were the only foreigners in the town. She was getting the film star treatment. Locals demanding selfies with her and asking her to hold their babies for photos. I was taken upstairs and was gently pulled by worshipers to the front of a queue of hundreds to pay my respects to the Gura, who has millions of followers throughout India. Totally amazing.
