Fact Check:

The claim is misleading.

NewsMeter conducted a Google reverse image search and found similar videos. Some social media users have posted the same video with a different description stating that it shows the "Tiruvarur Chariot festival, known in Tamil as Tiruvarur Therottam".

The same chariot and similar surroundings can be seen in the 'Tiruvarur Chariot Festival' video streamed live by Polimer News on 15 March 2022. (Also click here and here to read about the festival.)

The actual footage from the chariot festival at the Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple in Kadiri can be seen here, here, and here.



Hence, the claim is misleading.
