Makara Sankranti – A Festival for Beerdevaiah

Indian Festivals – Last night we were invited to the harvest festival (Makara Sankranti) for the local village. This was in celebration of the local deity Beeradevaiah, servant of Shiva.

Absolutely an incredible experience.

    How wonderful… I went to Haridwar a few years ago and saw the Shiva festival. Was so inspiring.
