Mauritius: Back in images of the cavadee temple Madurai Tamil Kovil (Caudan) of Port Louis
After ten days of fasting, hundreds of followers of temple Madurai Tamil Kovil (Caudan) Port-Louis, the body pierced with silver needles, took their cavadee, portico decorated with flowers, foliage and icons, in honor of divinity "Ammen".
 
The penitents had also on their heads or clipped to the skin, a container of copper called "sumbhoo" filled with milk.
 
These processions want to perpetuate the legend of Idumban that his guru, the sage Agattiyar, sent for the peaks of two mountains. The latter brought the two peaks attached to the ends of a wooden pole.
