4) Thaipusam
When: 22 Jan 2008 (annual)
Where: Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple
Singapore's Thaipusam festival, some aspects of which may seem strange to Westerners, is a Hindu festival of thanksgiving celebrated in honour of Lord Subrahmanya (also known as Lord Murugan) who represents virtue, youth and power and is the destroyer of evil. The festival occurs during the full moon day in the month of Thai (during January or February). It is a unique spectacle, but definitely not one for the faint-hearted. A few days before the procession itself, it's also possible to visit the stalls on Serangoon Rd which offer the kind of equipment used in this rather unusual event.
