The priests of Bubaneshwar !


The priests of Bubaneshwar !

 

The job hours are long. Lot of wait and patience is required to attract (!) the devotees .

 



One priest is devoted to every idol / worshiping place in the temple campus. He earns bread and butter from the it. More devotees he attracts, more he earns !



Apart from performing rituals, any other sacred job has to be performed by the priests of the temple. Cooking included.


There is leisure time too ! They are so many fr a small temple.


Some lucky ones get time to pose for the camera and they do it happily !
