Thaipoosum is one of the biggest event in Penang (Not only in Penang, most of the South East Asian countries, India and Sri Lanka) and is celebrated at the Mariamman Temple. This temple also very beautiful and spiritual place for worshipers and tourists as well. Marriaman Temples is on the way to Penang Hill in a few meters distance.

I was surprised we could visit the inside of the temple and shoot some pictures while there was a ceremony.Very nice light inside, i did not use flash, because i don't like to disturb the ceremony.

Good idea how to know partly hindu religion in live environment. We are visited one after another temples - chinese, christian, moslim. On one street are many different temples - penang is multicultural part of malajsia.

You have seen one, you have seen them all. Nothing special going on and nothing special to see. Exciting during the special ceremonies, but generally a moderate Hinduism temple.
