The Night Before Thaipusam

Follow Kishore and his family as they prepare for the annual ritual of Thaipusam at Batu Caves


Every year millions of Malaysian Hindu devotees gather at Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur, to prepare for the  gruelling ritual of building a kavadi which Kishore will carry all the way up the steps to the temple of Lord Murugan.

This fascinating insight into this colourful and fascinating festival was only possible with the help and permission of the family.
