    Rose-Hill : le temple tamoul Draupadee

    Favorite thing: Les temples Tamouls sont très colorés (contrairement aux temples hindous, très sobres, et blancs). Ils sont ornés d'une multitude de sculptures et peints de couleurs brillantes et vives.
    Les traditions religieuses tamoules sont très impressionnantes, qu'il s'agisse des marches sur le feu, ou du Cavadee (voir le Travelogue)

    La Mosqu��e

    Favorite thing: Tous les jours, au petit matin, c'est l'appel du Muezzin qui me servait de réveil. Il n'y a que les jours de cyclone où je ne l'ai pas entendu. Il rythme ainsi les journées, chaque matin et chaque soir.

    Fondest memory: Every day, it is in the small hours, the Muezzin's call that acted me as wakening. The days of cyclone where I didn't hear it ago. He rhythmizes the days, every morning and every evening thus.

    The church Notre Dame de Lourdes

    Church Notre Dame de Lourdes

    Favorite thing: Deux des églises de Rose-Hill se font face, de part et d'autre de la Route Royale, en direction de Port-Louis. Si vous êtes attentifs, vous remarquerez que les mauriciens, très religieux, se signent devant une église, quelle que soit leur confession ou leur croyance.
    L'église Notre Dame de Lourdes est celle où sont célébrés les mariages (en tout cas, c'est la seule où j'en ai vu célébrer à Rose-Hill).

    Fondest memory: Two of the churches of Rose-Hill cope themselves, on all sides of the Royal Road, in direction of Port-Louis. If you are attentive, you will notice that the mauriciens, very religious, signs themselves before a church, whatever is their confession or their belief.
    The church Notre Dame de Lourdes is the one where is celebrated the marriages (in any case, it is the only one where I saw to celebrate in Rose-Hill of it).

    Le Thai Pousam Cavadee �� l'��le Maurice

    Favorite thing: Le Cavadee a lieu plusieurs fois par an, mais le Thai Pousam Cavadee est de tous la plus populaire. Au cours de cette fête qui a lieu en fin janvier - début février, les fidèles vivent des instants de spiritualité intense.

    Cette fête est pour toute la communauté Tamoule l'occasion de manifester dans la solennité, la dignité et la ferveur, sa fidélité au dieu Mourouga.
    La date de la célébration et l'époque à laquelle elle doit avoir lieu sont fixées en tenant compte du calendrier Tamoul.
    Les dix jours précédant la fête sont sacrés. Après un jeûne de dix jours : l'âme est purifiée des passions et de l'orgueil, de la haine et de l'envie, où toute nourriture cuite est proscrite, le régime végétarien étant de rigueur. Les pèlerins marchent vers leurs temples, transportant sur leurs épaules leur 'Cavadee'.
    Leurs corps sont recouverts de fines aiguilles en argent.

    Fondest memory:
    The Cavadee takes place several times per year, but the Thai Pousam Cavadee is of all more popular. During this feast that has place in end of January - beginning February, the supporters live of the intense spirituality instants.
    The Thai Pousam Cavadee is celebrated in honor of Mourouga or Mourougan, sons cadet of the Siva god and Ouma.
    This feast is for the whole community Tamil the opportunity to show in solemnity, the dignity and the devotion, his fidelity in the Mourouga god.
    The date of the celebration and the time to which it must take place are fixed while taking into account the calendar Tamil.
    The ten days preceding the feast are consecrated. After one fasting of ten days: the soul is purified of the passions and the pride, the hate and the desire, where all cooked food is proscribed, the vegetarian regime being required. The pilgrims walk toward their temples, transporting on their shoulders them ' Cavadee'.
    Their bodies are covered of fine needles made of silver.
