Thaipusam in Singapore 2014

This year Thaipusam festival falls on 17 Jan. In case you are unclear what it is. It is a symbolic Hindu event celebrated by the Tamil community in Singapore. It is an annual procession by Hindu devotees seeking blessings, fulfilling vows and offering thanks. Public can witness the event starting at Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple along Serangoon Road to Sri Thendayuthapani Temple on Tank Road. The festival is a visual spectacle and it often brings traffic in the city centre to a standstill, with a colourful procession full of chanting and dizzying rhythms of Indian drums.

I documented the Thaipusam Festival back in 2011. It was my first trip to witness the festival, and i would say it was amazing.
