Prostitution in temples, such as the Devadasis cult, has occurred in India since the country’s inception.  This occupation degraded into temple prostitution in the present times. This practice is illegal in India under the Devadasi Security Act of 1934. This prohibition was reinforced in the 1980s, although the law is still violated on a daily basis.

Children GOOD Bellary recognized the gravity of the problem and organized a session with temple priests to raise awareness about the destructive practice of child devotion (the devadasi system). 

The session drew 28 temple priests from Ballari, who learned about how heinous this practice is. They didnt just get educated about this topic but also swore to never engage in this act.
