Watch Video: People worshiping inside the tree trunk in Reasi

There is a strong tradition of paying homage to ancestors in Dogra culture. Almost every clan has an ancestor whose shrine they visit every year and pay respects. We bring to you one such shrine in Reasi. Here in Reasi, at a little distance from the district centre, in village Marhi, people pay obeisance to their ancestors in a unique shrine.

The shrine has been erected within the trunk of a tree. Twice every year, the clan members come here to pay homage to their ancestors and present offerings, khaarka, to them. Watch this video to know more
