Thai Poosam Celebrations
We welcome you to attend Thai Poosam Celebrations.
The word Thaipusam is a combination of the name of the month, Thai, and the name of a star, Pusam (Tamil word for Pushya). This particular star is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates the occasion when Parvati Gave Murugan(Kartikeya) a Vel “spear” so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman and his brothers.
