MURUGA devotees gathered for the celebration of the Thaipoosam Kavady festival held last Tuesday and Sunday.

Community members gathered at their cultural organisations to observe prayers and participate in festivities during the days. On Sunday, devotees paraded with their kavadies, singing bhajans and praying with devotion to Lord Muruga.

The festival ended at 3 pm on Sunday after the last rituals of the Paal abishagam were performed.

Thereafter, the lowering of the flag marked the end of the festival.

“It was definitely an uplifting experience for everyone who attended,” said Cohen Pillay.

The Umbango Sri Siva Soobramoniar Alayam would like to invite the public to the Maha Shivarathri prayer which will be held at the temple on February 13 from 6 pm to 6 am.
