The annual Thaipusam festival is without a doubt, one of the grandest celebrations we look forward to every year. Witnessing beautifully decorated kavadis dancing to the beat, and thousands of Murugan devotees fulfilling their vows for their answered prayers used to be the norm for ages. But now, celebrations with strict SOPs are in place as we are still battling the spread of Covid-19.
If you're unable to join the Thaipusam celebrations this year due to the pandemic, fret not, as Astro Ulagam brings the celebration LIVE to your home from 7.00 PM, 17th January to 11.59 PM, to 18th January 2022.
Stay tuned to the exclusive Thaipusam LIVE coverage from Thaneermalai Sree Balathandayuthabani Devasthanam (Georgetown, Penang) and Kallumalai Arulmigu Subramaniyar Temple (Ipoh, Perak), as well as Thaipusam highlights from prominent Murugan Temples across the world such as Arulmigu Dhandayuthapani Swamy Temple (Palani, India), Arulmigu Swaminatha Swami Temple (Swamimalai, India), Kumaran Kundram Kovil (Chennai, India), Arulmigu Subramaniya Swamy Temple (Tiruchendur, India), Nadupalani Dandayuthapani Murugan Kovil (Madurantakam, India), Maruthamalai Arulmigu Subramanya Swami Temple (Coimbatore, India), Inuvil Kanthasuvami Kovil (Jaffna, Sri Lanka), Parashakthi Peedam Kali-Dhandayuthapani Kovil (Chebel, Mauritius) and Kovil Siva Soupramanien (Reunion Island, France).
