How to celebrate Thaipusam 2023

Thaipusam or Thaipoosam is a festival celebrated by the Hindu Tamil community on the full moon of the Tamil month (January/February) and usually coincides with the star Pushya known in Tamil as Poosam. This festival is also known as Thaipooyam Mahotsavam at the Shree Subrahmanya temple in Alappuzha, Kerala.

During Thaipusam, a 10-day festival (Brahmotsavam) is held at the Palani Arulmigu Dhandayuthapani temple. Thirukalyanam (marriage in heaven) takes place the day before Thaipusam. Therottam is held in Thaipusam. Lord Muthukumaraswamy will bless devotees of Thanga Guthirai Vahanam (Golden Horse), Periya Thanga Mayil Vahanam (Golden Peacock) and Theppotsavam (Float Festival) during the 10-day festival.
