Meeting with a Brahmin family

Here we meet with a Brahmin family. The husband is the pujary in a temple. She is his wife. We are in front of their house, it is very simple. But the family is highly respected as they belong to the highest caste in India. His only job is to see to it that the holy rituals are being done the right way.
The next evening we went there again with a load of questions about their sanctuary.
A deity has manifested herself in a rock in their temple. She is the wife of Shiva, one of the 3 Hindugods (Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu).
