Tuesday, September 16, 2014, 7:29 PM - A three-eyed cow is being hailed as the incarnation of the Hindu god Shiva in India.

Cows are considered sacred in Hindu culture -- but a three-eyed cow represents another level of worship.

In the Kolathur village of Tamil Nadu, the animal is being called a "miracle". Its third eye is drawing comparisons to the Lord Shiva, one of the primary Hindu gods, who also had a third eye.

The cow's owners believe the calf is an incarnation of the god and was sent to bring good luck to the village.

Crowds have flocked to visit the calf, who seems to be unaffected by his new-found fame.
