As soon as we arrived there was line ups of people waiting to get henna designs done.

I love watching the attention to detail in the intricate designs!


Hindu Festival - Ferris Wheel at Batu Caves

With an air of a typical fair, there were rides and stalls set up everywhere.

The stalls lined the path towards the entrance to Batu Caves.


Hindu Festival - Delicious Indian sweets

Many of the stalls were filled with delicious Indian treats!


Hindu Festival - Stacked Indian sweets

I could eat these all day! They’re basically sugar, with flavours of honey, pistachio and more!
