Ace shuttler PV Sindhu on Sunday offered prayers at Mahankali temple in the old city of Hyderabad.
Sporting traditional attire and carrying bonam (offering) on her head, the double-Olympics medallist visited Mahankali temple at Lal Darwaza in the old city and offered prayers.
Sindhu is hoping to end her long wait for the Commonwealth Games gold medal, during the upcoming edition of the Games in Birmingham. A gold medal has eluded Sindhu, who returned with a bronze and a silver in the last two editions.
The two-time Olympic medallist is in good form going into the Games, having recently won the Singapore Open title earlier this month.
Sindhu starts as the favourite for the gold medal this time with some competition coming from Canada's World no. 13 and 2014 champion Michelle Li, Scotland's World no. 18 Kristy Gilmour and Singapore's World no. 19 Yeo Jia Min.
