Devotees including women and children as young as four year old, from a small village in Karnataka in southern India worship scorpion Goddess Kondammai. Every year on the auspicious day as per Hindu calendar, they trek for miles to reach the temple and offer milk, coconut and oil to the idol. After prayers, they feed milk to the venomous scorpions that crawl in abundance under the rocks and stones in and around temple premises. SEE CATERS COPY Published 31 July 2017 Created 31 July 2017
