I took some photos last year of the Thaipusam.

Unfortunately, there were a few photographers who were not sensitive to the worshippers and their families.

In the name of getting that perfect shot, they were willing to block the kavadi carriers.

Remember last year started quite early from the Serangoon temple.
Understand some guys were inside the temple before 6 am
Was snapping away before 9 am along Serangoon Road, last year.

From my experience last year, most of the photographers will keep to themselves or their own gang.

Even smiling at them, they buat bodoh.

All information are already on the Hindu Endowments Board (HEB) website.

Ya lor, sad to say but these photographers think that they very "atas" and cannot even manage a smile.

However, the carnival atmosphere with the devotees and families makes up for it.:)

Can we really go into the temple (for non hindus) and take photos? Are they fine with it?

Axela,

Yeah, maybe you can see me with the Di-GPS.

Arbal,

Yes, you can enter the temple at Tank road. It's going to be a long wait to get into the temple as it's only one lane closed.

I'm not sure if it'll happen this year. What happened last year, all the Ang Moh tourists were allowed to pass through the cordoned area and go into the temple and bypass the queue.

The locals, devotees with kavadi and their families have to wait their turn into the temple at the one lane cordoned area.

I've some photos here in my flickr album.

You've to take out your shoes to enter the temple. Therefore carry a bag to put your shoes in or you'll have to leave it outside.
