Why Penang Thaipusam is the BEST?

Thaipusam Penang 2012 - 
Firstly what is Thaipusam event for?Thaipusam is celebrated during the full moon of the 10th month in the Hindu calendar. It is normally held in the last week of January or the beginning of February, depending on the alignment of the sun, moon and planets.I have been to Batu Caves Thaipusam once but I prefer Penang..Why I say Penang Thaipusam is the best?

1) Variety of Colourful "Panthal "


2)  Wonderful design of Kavadi's

3) Free  delicious vegetarian food give away


 Every year almost 100,000 visitors pouring the

"Pearl of Orient"  for Thaipusam .
Chariot normally will arrive Thanner Mallai Temple around 11pm on the eve of Thaipusam day and will return back to temple on the next day of Thaipusam.

Every Day Morre Panthal

Morre Panthal II

There is lot more beautiful & huge kavadis at night where the crowd is beyond maximum. We have to move like a train in order to pass through each panthal but I miss it this time since have to drive back to KL.
Lastly " make a note" that this is the first time my wife attending Penang Thaipusam....She impress I guess..)..
Maybe Ipoh Thaipusam so so only.Hehehhe.
