Mahasivaratri 2010

I live right next to the Sri Sivan Temple in Geylang. Each year we get a notice from them telling us that they will be celebrating through the night (last year was around Valentine’s Day, as I recall). There’s very little noise, and they do their best to keep the traffic moving despite the thousands of worshippers trying to get into the temple to present their milk pots as offerings.

This year, I decided to take a wander down there to see what all the hubbub was about, and I managed to get a few interesting shots. I was also allowed to shoot inside the temple, something I’ve never done before, so that was exciting too.
