Young Indian devotees of Hindu God Lord Krishna attempt to make a seven-tier human pyramid in the 'dahi-handi' (curd-pot) contest in Mumbai on August 24, 2008, as part of celebrations of "Janmashtami" which marks the birth of Hindu God Lord Krishna. Scores of Hindu devotees of Lord Krishna partake in the dahi-handi celebration during which a large earthenware pot is filled with milk, curds, butter, honey and fruits and suspended from a height of between 20 to 40 feet. Sporting young men and boys come forward to claim this prize by constructing a human pyramid till the pyramid is tall enough to enable the topmost person to reach the pot and claim the contents after breaking it.

Quiapo Church, in the Philippine capital of Manila, houses a burned image of Jesus Christ called
the Black Nazarene. On the first Sunday of January each year, more than a million Filipino devotees walk barefoot while parading the image around the church's vicinity. The procession, which often lasts the whole day, is just one of the hundreds of Catholic processions and feasts held in the country throughout the year. The Philippines is the only predominantly Catholic nation in Asia, where an overwhelming 80 percent of the population is Catholic.
Outside Quiapo Church, vendors sell miniatures of the Black Nazarene and other religious images and symbols. It is common to see images of Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, and various saints displayed in Filipino homes.
