Amusement Stall At The Kumbh Mela

The Kumbh has a definite carnival feel: bright colors, loud noise and plenty of food. There's even a small amusement park for the kiddies. But the purpose of the Kumbh is religious, so you have to respect the theme. Let's try a little carnival combo.

Presenting the devotion arcade.

A girl works a swing where money is left for a prayer. One of the fabulous figures of the booth.

Another detail and a pilgrim portrait.

Manning the booth and another donation plate. Your prize isn't a teddy bear, but redemption.

Two more  details of ancient Hindu stories come to life.

Down another road, someone was manning a holy cow truck. The kids loved it, although the show consisted only of cow mooing sounds (notice the mic and speaker).
