Hundreds of thousands throng Penang to celebrate Thaipusam

AFTER two years of celebrating Thaipusam on a small scale due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Hindu devotees as well as foreign tourists in Penang are going all out this year to commemorate the birthday of Lord Murugan.

In addition to the procession carrying the statue of Lord Murugan, devotees are cleansing themselves with the breaking of coconut ritual held on major roads in George Town, in Jalan Keramat and Jalan Kebun Bunga in preparation for the celebrations tomorrow.
