While we were in Malayasia, the country was gearing up for Deeplavali. Deepavali, or Diwali, is a five-day Hindu festival that begins on the shortest day of the year during the period between mid-October and mid-November. Deepavali celebrates light overcoming darkness and is also known as the Festival of Lights.
Deepavali is mainly a family celebration, and but we got to see some beautiful kolams.
The kolam is an intricate design on the floor made from coloured rice
and colored powder. Kolams are mainly at the entrance to the shopping malls.
We saw a few in KL and one in the foyer of the Gurney Plaza, Georgetown.
