"With its colourful traditions, the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam, often brings traffic in Singapore to a standstill – and with good reason.
Be part of the colourful festivities amidst the vibrant and charming streets of this historic neighbourhood, where the annual 'kavadi' procession starts from. With so many nooks to explore, the area also makes for a day of cultural adventures.
You can witness the spectacle anywhere between Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple at Serangoon Road and Sri Thendayuthapani Temple at Tank Road, as some lanes are closed to traffic for the occasion.
Devotees will walk the 4.5 kilometres, along with relatives and friends who chant hymns and prayers to support and encourage them."
