Thaipoosum Cavadee in Mauritius

http://s1090.photobucket.com/albums/...ius/?start=all

Thaipoosum Cavadee Celebrations in Mauritius - 2012

Thaipoosum Cavadee on Mauritius Island dates back to the first wave of Tamil immigrants from the Indian state of Tamil Nadu in the early 1800s. Since then, the festival has gained much prominence and is celebrated each year by Hindus.
Celebrated in honour of God Muruga, the son of Lord Shiva, Thaipoosum Cavadee is not only the most important festival in the Tamil calendar, but also the most spectacular. After ten days of fasting and prayers in January / February, devotees embark on a pilgrimage to local Kovils (Tamil temples). Throughout the procession, these devotees carry ‘cavadees’: carved, wooden structures decorated with leaves, flowers, fruits and photographs of saints, each designed to honour Lord Muruga. Devotees also pierce certain parts of their anatomy with fine needles, including their cheeks, backs and chests.
