W e take a peek inside the Batu Caves just outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
When we first planned this trip, I don’t think we actually realised just how intense and spiritual the Thaipusam celebrations actually are! Devotees in trances, piercing their face and body with large hooks and skewers and even men hanging by their skin… literally! These acts of pain are meant to show devotion to their Hindu god. The greater pain endured, the more merit gained.
Here are a few more photos from our visit there.
