Penang Hindu Temple – Sri Ambakarthur Patrakaliamman’s Religious Festivities – Part 1   Leave a comment


Penang Hindu Temple Religious Festivities – Part 1
This was the Festivities of the Penang Hindu Temple namely, Sri Ambakarthur Patrakaliamman of Penang is located at Kampung Baru, Ayer Itam, Penang. Though we were invited to photograph these Festivities including Fire-walking through the arrangement of another regular photographer, I was NOT allowed to enter the Fire-walking enclosure thus I could not take any photographs with extreme disappointment even though prior arrangement was made with the Temple Secretary. Bertrand Linet managed to enter to shoot but I was excluded. Sadly, there was no photograph of any fire-walking here but managed a few shots of the fire-pit when they were preparing this. See at Part 2 of the blog later. To add insult to injury I was pushed roughly during the Procession. I nearly fell but fortunately was helped by the bystanders. If I had fallen, two of my DSLRs namely, the 5DMkIII and 70D with the L lenses, shall see the end of their life-cycles.
