Malay Mail: Thaipusam celebration in Selangor expected to be lively this year

SHAH ALAM, Jan 30 — The Thaipusam celebration in Selangor is likely to be more lively this year as over a million Hindus are expected to throng the three main temples in the state.

State Special Committee for Non-Islamic Affairs co-chairman V. Ganabatirau said this was because the festival had been celebrated in a modest way the past three years with strict standard operating procedures (SOP) following the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We expect the Sri Subramaniar Swamy Temple, Batu Caves, near here to attract about a million visitors consisting of Hindus, locals and tourists.

“Two other locations that are also in the spotlight in Selangor are the Arulmigu Sri Subramaniar Temple in Kerling and the Sri Subramaniar Swamy Temple in Kuala Selangor with visitors expected to number at the two locations at some 20,000 and 50,000 people respectively,” he said when contacted by Bernama.
