Roadside Devotions...


Religious spots, specially temples on the side of the roads are a common sight in many cities in India. This is especially true in Bangalore too.. not sure who builds them and why on the roadsides, but one thing for sure is that they are an abosolute money making machines...
The demolition of roadside temples and encroachments had been both appreciated and scorned. Many municipal corporations have seeked interventions by courts to remove them too...

Seems like a good thing, why would they be demolished? Do they distribute the charity to the needy?
Nice photo and interesting info -- keep up the good work!
