Happy Thaipusam

Would like to wish my friends a Happy Thaipusam!

-a preparation for Thaipusam being done in front of Murugan Koveal (Murugan Temple) Kuala Lipis

Thaipusam is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (January/February). The word Thaipusam is derived from the month name Thai and Pusam, which refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival.

Looks like a fun, lively and exciting holiday! I guess they celebrate it in India, too?!
