Hindu Carving at Bondla

Several Hindu carvings were unearthed during the building of the Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary. These were most likely buried during the Inquisition, when non-Catholics were persecuted. Rather than being shipped off to a museum, then have been set up in situ and are looked after by Hindu staff.

Actually the statues are used in daily and annual Pujas.
