Photos taken in India in 2013

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­

See also my photos of Nepal that I took the same year.­

Photos of cows, and related bovine animals (e.­g.­ calves, oxes, bulls, water buffaloes, yacks).­

I have not included photos of butchered cows (body-parts and meat, i.­e.­ beef).­ Those can be seen in my Meat Markets series.
