Lord Shiva Festival 2

View On Black


my aunt lives right in front of a temple here in Kochi, Kerala nd last weekend when i got here there was a festival goin on for the Hindu God Lord Shiva who is a major Hindu god, and one aspect of Trimurti. In the Shaiva tradition of Hinduism, Shiva is seen as the supreme God. In the Smarta tradition, he is one of the five primary forms of God.

The festival was lot of fun they had alot of people dressed up, even elephants, fireworks, loads of em. The road right in from of the temple that is more than a mile long was closed nd lined up with fireworks layers in gun powders nd once the sun had set they lit it it was like a big fireball with continous massive explosions. Overall it was alot of fun!!
