Thaipusam

Thaipusam is an important Hindu festival that is celebrated in Malaysia by the Tamil community.  The Batu Caves, north of Kuala Lumpur, is a focal point for many of the Thaipusam activities.

Some of the devotees engage in the piercing of the flesh which can involve poking skewers through the skin, tongue or cheeks.
