Union home minister Amit Shah on Friday worshipped a cow at Ahmedabad's Jagannath temple on the occasion of Makar Sankranti and also offered prayers at the shrine. 

Shah, who is on a two-day Gujarat visit to celebrate the harvest festival (also called Uttarayan), performed 'aarti' of the animal revered by Hindus. 

"Cow worship is considered important in Sanatan Dharma. I got privilege of cow worship on this Uttarayan like every year at the Jagannath temple and received blessing of saints," the Lok Sabha MP from Gandhinagar tweeted. 

Shah also posted photos along with the tweet of his worship of cow and him offering prayers to Lord Jagannath at the temple.
