When I visited this amazing Temple in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur called “Batu Caves”, and saw the Dedication  from the various religious clerics and the people in the temple which was astounding.

Batu Caves is a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples in the Gombak district, 13 kilometres (8 mi) north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of the nearby village. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.

  1. An outsider witnessing the events of the Hajj would also be impressed. But for sure, there are people in crowds who are there for other than the “right” reason. I’m sure it’s the same for other religions. Of the conditions of the Shahada, “certainty” is one of them. BTW, I’m curious of your choice of B&W for these images. In my experience, the scenes are pretty colorful.
