    Can enter the temple proper but no footwear...plastic bags provided outside the temple to keep your footwear so can tie it on your bag/belt...can get real close to the devotees BUT pls do not obstruct any activities...this will be my 2nd time there...maybe next year can go to Batu Caves.... hope to see some of you there...

    just to put some tips together ...

    1. for Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple (Kavadi carriers' starting point) alight at NEL Farrer Park

    2. for Sri Thendayuthapani Temple (end point) alight at NEL Clarke Quay or NSL/NEL Dhoby Ghaut

    3. don't over equip yourself. travel light, 2 lenses that you are most comfortable with should suffice. tripod not recommended, you might either hit someone or someone trips over it with so much people and movement all around.

    4. wear sandals or any other light footwear, plastic bags are provided for you to keep your footwear when entering temple compounds but will be good to have a bag big enough to contain your footwear so that the plastic bag don't need to 'hang on' to you. if you drive and manage to get parking somewhere near, consider moving around barefooted, isn't that bad, tried before already, just be careful where you put your feet

    5. respect the religion, respect the devotees. the event is not meant for your shooting pleasure, you're just a guest.

    there are other processions going on that day, alot of members posted links to the event details, do have a look, good luck!
