Thaipusam


Thaipusam is a Hindu festival marking when Parvati gave Murugan a spear with which to beat Soorapadam. In Singapore devotees begin at the Sri Srinivasa temple carrying pots of milk as offerings to the tank road temple. Often Kavadis are attached to their bodies as a physical burden to ask for help from the god Murugan, making it a site for visitors to witness.
