Pongal Harvest Festival 丰收节 7 of 10 ...


Pongal Harvest Festival 
丰收节
...
The Pilgrimage begins from 
main temple of Kuala Lumpur 
Batu Cave to the next temple,
which took about 30 minutes.
...
I cannot imagine the 65 km pilgrimage
in India from Kottayam to Sabarimala.
I have heard that that pilgrimage
in India is one of the largest migration
of people in an annual event
...
Despite the smaller size and the symbolic distance
of the pilgrimage in KL Batu Caves, 
it was great to have witness and followed
through the pilgrimage walk
...

Wong,do only men take part in this pilgrimage...and why some of them are covering themselves up fully? Do you participate to this pilgrimage walk?
Very interesting tradition and nice shots. Have a nice afternoon.
In Italy it's very cold and it's snowing.
