Temple of Pythons

Ouidah, a town in Benin houses the temple of pythons.

Here they are seen as revered creatures and are welcome into the resident’s homes with open arms. They are symbolisms of peace, prosperity and wisdom.

Word on the street is the temple is a small room that houses many of the slithering animals.

For a price, one can visit and even take photographs with the snakes.
