The word Kavadi is derived from ‘kaavu’ and ‘tadi’ which means a pole to carry things. Kavadi has various shapes, sizes and colors.

It is slung across the shoulder. Kavadis are decorated with string of bells, flowers and peacock feathers. These are some of the Kavadis that you might witness during Thaipusam.
