Mailam the First

Traditional first of January Roadtrip to Mailam.
The Hill-Temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan, son of Shiva – and so is the hair. Men and woman have their head- and facial hair removed as an offering to the deity. Since we link our perception of beauty, identity and self to our looks and physical appearance, your bold-ugly-naked-monkey-ass head becomes just as bold as the universal truth: your material form is simply a result of a nonmaterial effort, and nothing can ever be not you.
Puthandu Vazthukal 2017!
