NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- Maybe we can attribute all those Elvis sightings to reincarnation.
In one small town in the Indian state of Karnataka, a picture of Elvis Presley hangs beside pictures of Hindu gods in a temple, according to a report in India Today magazine.
The faithful reportedly come to worship Elvis just like the other deities. The rock 'n' roll singer died in 1977.
The temple is attached to the home of a man who published a booklet last year under Elvis' name, entitled "Why my daughter married Michael Jackson."
