To akh: hey

  • Hey Azadeh..nice to see you..no that is a prayer wheel i have shown it in an earlier post from the same place...the top portion revolves around the wooden handle and the the prayers inscribed on the surface of the metal give a gentle wind which they believe has a protective effect on them..so they carry it along all the time, mostly the older ones..

    have a pleasant sunday dear
