Deepavali Open House At Time Square, Penang.

Today is an important day for Hindus. It's Deepavali! Deepavali, also called as 'Festival of Light', is one of the most important festival for Hindus. It's celebrated between mid-October and mid-November. Today, it falls on today.

There is an open house hosted in Time Square, Penang, from 11am to 2pm. As I didn't have work, I manage to give it a visit.

Around Time Square, there are quite a number of temples. I saw a lot of Hindus were being there. I can feel how important this festival to them.

In this open house, I can see there are quite a lot of people attending. And the people attended are not just Hindus. I can see there are various people from various races and religions gathered there. That's what should be seen in Malaysia, right?

Well, let's look at photos to see how's the open house.
