Multireligion painting


I saw this picture placed next to a little road-side Hindu temple while walking the streets of Chennai, in Tamil Nadu (Southern India).

It truly caught my attention because, despite the fact that is was part of a place for Hinduism devotees, it depicts symbols of 3 religions: a mosque (Islam), Lord Ganesha (Hinduism) and Jesus Christ (Christianity).

This picture shows exactly what India is all about: a huge mixing pot of cultures and religions. Over here, multiple faiths and beliefs live side-by-side. And, by the most part, they do so in peace.
