There is a ban on wearing shoes and slippers in this village of India!
In today's time, people cannot walk even a single step without footwear. But can you live without shoes for the rest of your life? We are going to tell you about one such village in India where wearing slippers is banned.
This village is situated at a distance of 20 kilometers from the city of Madurai in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, named Kalimayan village. The people of this village do not even allow their children to wear slippers and shoes. If someone wears slippers, he is also punished severely.
The people of this village have been worshiping a deity named Apachhi for centuries. These people believe that only their gods protect them. They do not wear footwear in their village just to have faith in the deity. People are following this tradition for centuries.
If someone has to go out, he takes shoes and slippers in his hand and wears slippers from where the border of the village ends. After this, when they come back, they remove the slippers before the village border. The children here also go to school barefoot.
