Summary
Date & Time Click on "Book Now" tab to see available tour dates Price 20 Jan Evening plus 21 Jan Early Morning $90 20 Jan Evening (inc light supper) $50 Children under 12 Eve of plus early morning $35 One of the most vibrant, colourful, and memorable temple festivals you will ever witness, Thaipusam is a thanks-giving and penance-seeking religious event for Tamilian Hindus. In this amazing form of worship, devotees pierce their bodies with long metal skewers and carry burdens of 40 kg for four kilometres, all the while dancing to rhythmic chants. Celebrated in only a few countries,Thaipusam in Singapore differs from the festival in India, where Hindus from the state of Tamil Nadu carry heavy milk pots — and not the cumbersome kavadis carried here. The procession is a a photographer’s paradise where light, colour and frenzy come together in vivid splendour. On the day and evening before Thaipusam, the gods have a "family visit" with a silver chariot setting off from the temple before dawn and returning in the early evening. This return is what we will witness on this tour, after which we will "prepare" ourselves for the main festival of Thaipusam the following day — don't worry no piercings involved in those preps! Please note we are offering this tour in two parts (Jan 20th evening & early morning Jan 21st); please ensure you register for one or both. We encourage you to come to both if at all possible. Our eve of tour (approx 6-9pm) will start with a talk about the history and belief system behind this fascinating festival, and a look at the silver chariot procession. We'll end with a light supper. Next day's early morning tour (6am to 9am) starts with viewing the preparation tent in the temple, and further explanation of the rites and 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 four kilometres to Tank Road, you may do so after breakfast. Our guides will be happy to show you the way. Bring your best camera!!
