L1002372-Edit-1THAIPUSAM 2014

The annual Thaipusam festival was held yesterday In Singapore as well as in other cities in Asia with large hindi communities. This is the first time that I had visited to see what it was all about. The festival starts in the late evening the night before where devotees meet at the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple for prayer and offerings before proceeding to Sri Thendayuthapani Temple about 4-5km carrying various types of kavadi’s.
