STORY #32: HATHI POL

Haathi means elephant. This is the fourth gate. As you probably guessed already, the gate gets its name from the stone elephants on each side. As soon as you enter Haathi Pol, you will see florists on the right, selling roses and garlands for worship. Pilgrims adorn the idols and footprints with these flowers.

On the immediate left is a window to get free tickets to do “pooja” or worship. Although anyone can enter the temples, only ticket holders can go inside the altar to worship. Sometimes there is a very long line to do Pooja.

To the left, you will find an area for men and women to change into clean clothes for worship.
