Deity By The Wayside

Deity by roadside

A Hindu deity was stationed by the wayside

Shot in the city of Nasik, India.

There was a small shrine by the wayside. And a statue of a deity was stationed. I couldn't understand what kind of deity it was. I often saw Ganesha during strolling. Yet this deity's face didn't have an elephant's face. Anyway, it was worshipped by the locals.

Every locals who walked this narrow street stopped in front of it and prayed. Apparently, it was Kubera, the Lord of Wealth. So they could pray with ardor. After shooting, I also prayed for the wealth here.
