“Festival with turmeric”. Thousands of pilgrims devoted to Khandoba are celebrating the festival with turmeric powder during a no moon day that falls on the Monday of any month in Hindu calendar. The lord is believed to be covered in turmeric and is hence showered with turmeric during processions. Lord Khandoba is a popular regional deity worshipped as an avatar of Lord Shiva. He is considered the patron deity of castes whose occupations involve war, farming, hunting and animal husbandry. Considered a secular deity, his followers include Muslim devotees and people from various castes. Photo location: Jejuri, State-Maharashtra, Country-India.
