The sun rises on a Sembawang tradition

5 04 2012

The Panguni Uthiram festival is a Hindu festival that is celebrated annually during the full moon of the Tamil month of Panguni. In Singapore, this is celebrated at the Holy Tree Sri Balasubramaniar Temple, now located at Yishun Industrial Park A. The celebration of the festival in the area traces its history back to 1967 when the temple was located off Canberra Road which was then part of the Royal Navy Naval Base in Sembawang. More information can be found on a previous post, A lesser known Hindu festival with a Kavadi procession: Panguni Uthiram, and also on the Holy Tree Sri Balasubramaniar Temple’s website.

Dear Mr Jerome Lim
Can I ask you if you can share the wonderful pictures you took during Pangunni Uthiram please. We are collating the pictures for the temple’s consecration ceremony on the 11th February 2018. The pictures will be put in the magazine. We will make sure we acknowledge you in the magazine.
