SINGAPORE: Devotees thronged the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple in Little India on Thursday to celebrate the Hindu festival Thaipusam.

One of Singapore's oldest temples, Perumal Temple is the starting point of the annual Thaipusam procession.

Devotees will carry various types of "kavadi" to seek blessings from the Hindu warrior god Murugan.

As large crowds are expected at Little India, the Public Order Act proclamation will be in effect in the area.

The alcohol ban in Little India will take effect from 6pm on Thursday to 6am on Monday.  - CNA/xq
