Malaysia’s riotious Festival


 

Location: Batu Caves, outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Date: Full moon day in the 10th Tamil month of Thai (mid-January to mid- February)

Level of Participation: 1 – watch the pain from the sidelines

The most spectacular Hindu festival in Malaysia is a wild orgy of seemingly hideous body piercings, marking the day when Lord Shiva’s son, Murugan, was given a lance to vanquish three demons. The greatest sight is the kavadi carriers, the devotees who subject themselves to seemingly masochistic acts as fulfilment for answered prayers. Many of the faithful carry offerings of milk in paal kudam (milk pots) often connected to their skin by hooks. Even more striking are the vel kavadi – great cages of spikes that pierce the skin of the carrier and are decorated with peacock feathers, pictures of deities, and flowers. Some penitents go as far as piercing their tongues and cheeks with hooks, skewers and tridents. While it looks excruciating, a trance-like state stops participants from feeling pain; later the wounds are treated with lemon juice and holy ash to prevent scarring.

Essentials: Only the truly faithful should attempt the ritual – insufficiently prepared devotees keep doctors especially busy over the festival period with skin lacerations.

Local Attractions: At the Batu Caves you’ll find monkeys scaling the towering limestone outcrop, and you can climb the 272 steps into Temple Cave, the vast main cavern, where there’s an enormous golden statue of Murugan.

i-City, Selangor, Malaysia


Image

i-City is the latest tourist spot in Shah Alam, Selangor. Dubbed the City of Digital Lights, it is reputed to be the first lightscape tourist destination in Malaysia. Showcasing state-of-the-art LED technology, i-City is an exciting and fascinating place to visit, especially during festive seasons such as Chinese New Year. The combination of the LED lights technology and traditional element presents a strong selling point for i-City.

Why i-City

As visitors stroll around the colourful forest that resembles a four-season park, they get to see dozens of wonderful sculptures. Besides that, many beautiful red and yellow lanterns can also be seen. The sculptures and themes, as well as the lighting decoration in i-City are changed periodically. Hence, there will always be something new for visitors to see and enjoy.

With beautiful scenery and unique display of dazzling digital lights, it is not a surprise that i-City is a haven for shutterbugs. It also provides a beautiful setting for wedding photography. With numerous bulbs lighting up i-City nightly, some people might be concerned about their effect on the environment.

i-City is quick to assure that the digital lights with total power consumption equivalent to about 4 shop lots, are environmentally friendly. i-City is open 24 hours a day as it has been approved as a technopreneur campus, where cosmopolitan lifestyle outlets can operate on a 24-hour basis.

Under this concept, i-City will be a gated but open zone where security, traffic management, landscaping, rubbish management and other township services will be the responsibility of i-City. This is in recognition of i-City as a night tourist destination and a knowledge hub.

Getting to i-City

30 minutes drive from PJ/KL, use the Federal Highway heading towards Shah Alam. Exit at the Batu Tiga Toll Station. Look for the BP gas station, and then turn left at the UiTM/i-City signage. Drive onwards till you reach the traffic lights and turn right. Drive on the left lane until you see Shell gas station and KFC. Turn left before the traffic lights. Go straight again and when you see a chrome ball turn left, and you will be able to see i-City.

Take the KTM Komuter to Batu Tiga Komuter Station. From there, take a bus or taxi to i-City.
