During lunch time this afternoon, I decided to hop over (yes, pun intended – it is CNY 2011 – Year of the Rabbit) to Somerset MRT. Looked around and shot some pictures. Then walked towards the National Museum.
Saw that there were security guards on the road. What was the occasion I wondered? Smack! Hey, today is Thaipusam!
Isn’t it lucky I was at the right place, at the right moment with a camera along?
Thaipusam is celebrated by Hindu devotees in worship of Lord Murugan. The festival occurs between January to February in the Tamil calendar.
Pictures below. See you on the next post!
[Edit - amended - Thaipusam is not the festival of lights. Rather it is Deepavali. Thanks to Anonymous.]
