Experience one of the most beautiful festivals that take place in Singapore. It’s none other than the Thaipusam which is actually a Hindu festival that is celebrated by the Tamil communities all over the world. It is celebrated on the full moon day of the Tamil month of Thai which is usually either in January or February. It all depends upon the position of the moon at the time.
This festival is in honour of Lord Murugan who is known to be the God of War and symbolises youth, power and virtue. The word Thaipusam is a combination of two words “Thai” and “Pusam” which is the brightest start in the night sky. In Singapore, devotees celebrate with kavadi and give praises for vows that have been fulfilled with body piercings. If you happen to be staying at 4-star hotels in Singapore the likes of Travelodge Harbourfront and would like to see this for yourself, asking the hotel for details is always an option.
