Snakes are the most deadly reptiles and the most feared one. Be it poisonous or non-poisonous, we just do not like it surrounding us. In fact, I fear to see them on the television. Because they conquer my dreams and frighten me the entire night. However, the fact is, they do not intend to harm us until they feel that we will harm them.
Not only Hindus, but also several religion across the globe worship snakes. The snake worshipers do not appreciate harming the snake.
Coming to the photographs in this post, these were captured in a small temple dedicated to the Hindu goddess Ankalaparameshwari situated in Karur, Tamil Nadu.
