Chronicles-of-Thaipusam

Sneak peek into the cave of Lord Murugan, surrounded by lush greenery, the Lord waits for his devotees. Batu Caves is a prominent place of worship dedicated to Lord Muruga situated in Malaysia. 
  

Two devotees are seen here taking a dip on the river by the foothill before proceeding to their piercing ceremony, a moment before they carry their Kavadi to the home of Lord Murugan.

Devotees continue to shower the Lord with milk, offering from the heart. May Lord Murugan bless them always. 

Music and dance continue at Batu Caves. Seen here is a troupe performing the Karakattam (water pot dance), an ancient folk dance of Tamil Nadu. Traditionally accompanied by folk song, the dancer balances a beautifully decorated pot on her head, symbolising joy and happiness. And that is exactly what she brings to the crowd…

Music makes me smile, music makes me forget my worries, music transcends race and language, music is divine and it brings me closer to Lord Murugan. I shall dance and carry my Kavadi to his abode. #VelVelMuruga

Hot and savory fritter up for grab…watch out don’t burn your tongue, but make sure you have more than one. In the Lord’s house, you will never run out of food.
