Women trampled by "god-men" in a bid to get pregnant [Photos]
Upon their arrival, they lie on the bare floor and are walked over by these 'god-men', as part of the ritual.
According to reports, the women have performed this ritual for years during the annual festival of Ekadashi, in the month of July.
Daily Mail reports that women who are yet to bear children reportedly visit the Lakshmi Narasimha Swami temple, in Anantapur district.
Seeing as the ritual has been carried out for years, there must have been some level of success, to their understanding.
The Indians have various traditions and practices which are frowned at by those who are not of the same descent and therefore do not understand these practices which usually border on the bizzare.
