Faith, sacrifice, thanks

by Joelynn Chin - 5 years, 4 months ago

Thaipusam at Batu Caves is one of the top draws for tourists and photographers. Despite living in Kuala Lumpur for the last 14 years, I have never gone for the festival until this year. Waking up at 4am to get to Batu Caves, I joined the Hindu devotees as they climb up 272 steps to fulfill their vows for prayers answered. While they carried milk pots and kavadis, I carried my camera. It took me three hours to reach the cave because the crowd was massive.
