Silver Chariot departs


Visited the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Kuala Lumpur, almost two months ago for my sister's wedding. Yesterday, I came back for the Silver Chariot procession, that carries Lord Murugan with his consorts, Valli and Theivanai. The procession will commence from this temple to Batu Caves which signifies the beginning of Thaipusam. With thousands of devotees taking part in this ceremony, it is difficult to move around without help from the police and the temple guards, who are there to ensure people's safety and crowd control.
