Puja Items by Temple

Located in the back entrance of the Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore (Chennai), these vendors were eager to sell their wares to Hindu devotees. Items such as flowers, coconut, betel leaves, and ghee lamps would be purchased by Hindus for performing of puja ceremonies  - ritual offerings to gods to receive blessings. 

One of my color pencil drawings depicts a woman vendor by the temple, largely focusing on stringing flower petals.
