Ouidah, Benin

At the Temple of Pythons (just as the name sounds…. pythons!), dozens of these pythons are housed and worshipped at the temple of Vodun.

As gory as it sounds, it’s a religious practice to other similar Western African countries such as Ghana and Togo. These snarls of snakes aren’t harmful to humans and they are important religious symbols and are respected by the worshippers.
