Among all rides, I can say this Hundial ride is very nearer to my heart.I hope people would have enjoyed all sorts of rides viz commuting for routines like a cycle, bike, car, jeep etc., and other amusement rides which have different kinds of flat ride, gravity ride, vertical rides etc.,
The one I am talking about is Hundial ride
Let us see first what is Hundial(Offertory box)?
Hope people would have known about Hundial which is a collection of money of various kinds, notes, coins and in temples other forms of metals like gold, silver, diamond, and platinum too. Dropping is a common function of Hundial both for collection, it is inside and for counting it is outside. And in temples, while dropping for counting, the mixing of various kinds of currency is possible and there are many procedures followed for segregation of items dropped in the Hundial at various temples and count and deposited into the bank.
What is Hundial ride?
I always feel whenever I visited Tirumala, the whole of the hill is a hundial and the way the TTD authorities organise for sending pilgrims inside the temple is similar to Hundial where at some point, they mix of various forms of Darshan Sevas(either free or cost) pilgrims and in some point, they segregate via various routes inside the temple and finally pilgrims reach the sanctum sanctorum to see the God. Very recently about a week back, I visited Tirumala via SriVari Mettu and had a darshan and while going inside, my mind thought it as a Hundial ride and when I see this weeks' TOW, ride I thought I can write it here. Hope those who have visited often in various forms of Darshan may correlate their trips with this ride and others may visualise this Hundial ride as per their imagination.
One more thing I would like to share is I have taken this route(Srivari Mettu) which I sincerely say, I came to know from one of the ISC member shared in this thread
