The Thaipusam Festival celebrates the birth of the Lord Marugan. Devotees carry pots of milk in a vessel called a kudan in a procession from one temple over many kilometres to a White Temple in the hills. Some pots are small and connected to the body by hooks. These are often connected to ropes and further tension made by attendees dragging behind. This small video clip shows elaborate headgear worn by devotees on their way to the Temple.
Slide show of some of the amazing sights we saw at the Thaipusam fesitval in Penang. Pots of milk are connected to devotees with hooks, and they walk many kilometres to the Waterfall temple.They usually had an attendant on hand to help them.
KL tower at night, Old Portuguese style buildings, and Central Market which displays crafts from Malaysian provinces.The walkway is designed as a kite, some of which can be seen in the interior shot.
One good thing about this place is that it provided a cool retreat from KL's heat, ultimate coffee shops, great people watching space.Dave and I also got carried away with reflected reality which provided us with a much more entertaining view of the world.Hence the rather arty photos of shoppers reflected in windows.
