Women buying limes - Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India.jpg
Every full moon, tens of thousands of pilgrims walk barefoot along a 14km path around the holy mountain at Tiruvannamalai. Here women buy limes to offer at the many temples and shrines along the route.  According to Hindus the walk, known as Grivalam, removes sins, and helps achieve freedom from the cycle of birth and rebirth.
