Thaipusam 2013 Videos in Batu Caves, Malaysia were taken in full HD on the 27th January 2013. This was my first time actually visiting Batu Caves for the Thaipusam Festival where a total of 1.6 million devotees and visitors came in two days. As the ceremony begins on the eve of the actual day, many devotees start the ritual just after midnight which spreads over the the actual day on Sunday.
The devotees start their vows by the river where prayers are done and then start carrying the Kavadi's which can weigh from 30-50 kilograms each. They make their way barefoot on the road for a few kilometers towards the foot of Batu Caves. From there, they take turns to make their way up to the temple to complete their vow. Other devotees are seen with hooks on their backs and some hooked to straps where someone holds them back. Watch the video for this amazing festival which is one of the most interesting in the world.
This stunning cultural festival is also voted as one of the most fascinating cultural festivals in the world where a myriad of colors and incredible feats are performed throughout the day here in Malaysia. The Thaipusam Festival is also celebrated in other parts of Malaysia like Penang, Ipoh and Melaka but it is here in Batu Caves where you will find the biggest celebration. Till next year and I hope you enjoyed my Thaipusam 2013 Videos.
