Thaipusam Festival Trip

Join Community Recreation on a trip to see the Thaipusam Festival!! Thaipusam is a religious celebration practiced by Hindu communities around the world. Some devotees simply make offerings at temples, while others pierce their flesh with metal hooks and skewers. The most spectacular form of this self-mortification is carrying a kavadi, an ornately decorated metal cage pierced through the carrier's body.
