Et Cetera 16

At entrance to the Jagdish Temple in Udaipur.  The feet on which
the woman is placing an offering belong to the goddess Lakshmi,
the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity. She is the wife
and shakti (energy) of Vishnu, one of the principal deities of Hinduism
and the Supreme Being in the Vaishnavism Tradition. Lakshmi is also an
important deity in Jainism and found in Jain temples.  (Wikipedia)

We frequently saw little decals or Lakshmi's feet at entrances everywhere.
