A Scene at Thaipusam Festival


Today marks the day of the Thaipusam festival, celebrated by Hindu devotees in the country.

Thaipusam is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community annually. Outside India, Malaysia is the only country which widely observes this festival. In Malaysia, it was popularly celebrated by many Hindu devotees either at the Batu Caves in Selangor or the Waterfall Temple in Penang. Carrying the ‘kavadi’ or pulling chariots via ropes pierced on the bodies of devotees are common sights during the festival.

Not exactly a wall mural, as this was found drawn inside an old abandoned telephone booth in Armenian Street.
