Meals for the rats' are mixed in such big vats that you'd expect to see a swarm of rats crawling all over the temple's marble floor.
This is no ordinary temple evening. It's the night before their biggest festival. The temple is lit up as if it were a karmic casino and the pilgrims pour in.
Some pilgrims arrive just before dawn after having walked all night on a 30 kilometer spiritual trek.
