槟城大宝森节 ...


Early morning at Waterfall Road 清晨到瀑布路 ...

This is the second day of Thaipusam in Penang, the procession of the spiritual
journey from Little India Georgetown would have reached here the previous night ...


Early morning at Waterfall Road 清晨到瀑布路 ...
I reached here very early at 6 am and too many are already here earlier ...


Early morning at Waterfall Road 清晨到瀑布路 ...
Waterfall road is a very long road, it is adorned with various booths 
for prayers as devotees hiked to the main temple ...


Early morning at Waterfall Road 清晨到瀑布路 ...
Images of Hindu Gods are everyhwere ...

Early morning at Waterfall Road 清晨到瀑布路 ...
There were no Kavadi's early in the morning, but
devotees carrying milk as offerings to the main temple ...

It is not easy to carry a bucket of milk like this bare-footed for
a few kilometers ...


Early morning at Waterfall Road 清晨到瀑布路 ...
As the day breaks, huge crowds are everywhere on the WaterRoad
leading to the temple and families are preparing for their own
journey of milk offerings ...

Podobają mi się wygasłe żarówki i wstążeczki... Właściwie nie wiem co to jest.
Odnośnie dymu, to oddech moje męża. Zobaczyłam to jak mi się wyświetliło zdjęcie w aparacie i też na początku myślałam, że dym, ale nic się nie dymiło.
