Event Thaipusam

Thaipusam, for Indian, is a celebration of the victory of good over evil.To many Thaipusam is the day of thanksgiving or atonement for wrongs.

Several hundred devotees spear their cheeks with long, shiny steel rods - often a metre long - and pierce their chests and backs with small, hook-like needles in penance.A kavadi bearer at Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur.
