    Thimithi Festival

    Witness the courage, faith and endurance of Hindu devotees at Thimithi, an annual fire-walking ceremony honouring the Goddess Draupadi, a heroine of the epic poem "Mahabharata". In honour of her courage, devotees subject themselves to the test of faith by walking barefooted across a 4 m red-hot coalpit. Between the intense heat and cold chills, fire-walkers focus in deep concentration to complete the challenge miraculously unscathed as the crowd heaves a sigh of relief.

    Festival celebrations begin at 2am at the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple at Serangoon Road, Little India and the fire-walking starts at 5pm at Sri Mariamman Temple.

    Temple etiquette requires visitors to be dressed appropriately and shoes to be removed at the doors.

    I went this morning around 10am, but still too late. Fire walking was over, but there was still alot of other stuff going on. Snapped a few pictures. I tot since some of the roads closed till 3pm the thing would be on for quite some time. Guess the lesson is, if not sure just go super super early.
