Kavadi Dance in Hamm

The temple of Sri Kamadchi Ampal is the largest Hindu Temple outside India next to the one in London, as far as I know.

On the 6th of July the temple fest brought over 20,000 people together for a celebration. The images of the last few days in my blog are telling the beginning of that story.

Here is some more insight into the Kavadi Dance - a trance dance that people participate in to give thanks for something the acchieved or to ask for something they are persuing. We got told stories about health recoverey, job situations and things along those lines a few years ago when we looked deeper into it.

Check back in: On one of the next few days I will share a little movie I made of the dancers.
