Kavadi - Mannar, Sri Lanka

We came across a Hindu religious festival on our way to Mannar. We were able to get out of the vehicle and walk amongst the crowds gathered on either side of the road and watch proceedings. The Hindu devotees pierce their skin with iron hooks fastened to long ropes which are then suspended off vehicles. This is done to show their devotion to Lord Murugan.
