Fascinating video shows religious devotees carrying out a ritual in southern India, which involves slinging cow dung at each other.

The annual tradition in southern India is believed to date back hundreds of years, and believers take part in order to appease for the sins of their ancestors.

Each year men in the small village of Gomatapura descend on a 4ft bed of cow dung, which is thrown at rivals.

According to Newsflare , the tradition in the small community, which is close to the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, has its roots in an accident 250 years ago.

Villagers are said to have run over a sacred idol with a cart.
