Devi Taleb Mandir

The other night we went to visit a Hindu temple here in Jalandhar. I’m not entirely sure how many Hindus live here in the Punjab. I know that the state was divided into two some years ago. The other half is called Haryana and is to the south of the Punjab. I believe the state was divided along religious lines, with the Punjab being overwhelmingly Sikh and Haryana overwhelmingly Hindu.

This temple was huge with shrines of all sorts and guys sitting at each one offering visitors grains of sugar and sometimes ‘leis’ of orange and yellow flowers. I did find a blog entry talking about Devi Taleb Mandir, but haven’t been able to find much other information about the place. Enjoy the pictures.
