Thaipusam early morning walking tour/Feb 9

Description

One of the most vibrant, colourful & memorable temple festivals you will ever witness, Thaipusam is a thanks-giving and penance-seeking religious event celebrated in such an amazing way by Tamil Hindus in only a very few countries, including Singapore but NOT including India where they limit themselves to milk pots; (what, no kavadis?!)

Come and see this amazing form of worship where devotees carry burdens of 40 kg for 4 kilometres, all the while dancing to rhythmic chants with their bodies pieced with long, metal skewers. A photographer’s paradise where light, colour and frenzy come together.

Our early morning tour starts with meeting your guide, Shanti, and viewing the preparation tent in the temple, and an explanation of the rites & rituals. After which, we shall walk part way with the procession & our morning ends with a vegetarian breakfast.

For the adventurous game enough to try the entire walk of 4 km to Tank Road, you may do so after breakfast - Shanti will be happy to show you the route.

Bring your best camera!!

NB as with all our tours, you will receive an email a few days before the event with all the details of where to meet etc, so please ensure our email address (jane@geraldenestours.com) is in your address book to prevent our message being "Spammed"
