    Hello Sir/Madam

    I am looking to witness the Thaipusam 2014 Hindi ceremonial event that takes place at Batu cave, Kuala Lumpur.

    Specifically the one that involves ceremonial body piercings.

    In my research I have found many conflicting dates. January 17, January 27, & February 15.

    These dates do state that they are also confirmed Thaipusam 2014 by the Malaysia tourism and government.

    Can you please confirm the Batu cave Thaipusam 2014 festival.

    Do you have a schedule of events or highlights to not miss events for Thaipusam 2014..

    Thank you for understanding my confusion and for your professional service to my inquiry.
