Indian portraits (4): The mad of Kalighat

Portrait of a crazy sadhu at Kalighat, a Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Kali. It is said that in the past the worshipers of Kali offered human sacrifices in this temple, now they still do it but with goats. Although that’ll show you in another post!

Retrat d’un boig sadhu a Kalighat, el temple hinduista consagrat a la Deessa Kali. Es diu que en el passat els adoradors de Kali li oferien sacrificis humans en aquest temple, en l’actualitat es fa amb sang de cabres. Encara que això us ho mostraré en una altre ocasió!
