Description: This crude representation of Vishnu is a side shrine in a temple in Baranas, just across from the Golden Temple. The bars across the figure are part of a screen door in front of the image to keep pilgrims back when no priest is present. A small fire offering is burning on the stand in front of the doorway. This is typical of the inner shrine of a temple.
