5th Feb 2023 is Thaipusam!
Thaipusam is on 5th February 2023 – Malaysia Hindu Sangam explains!
8 Feb 2022 –
Next year, Thaipusam is celebrated on Sunday, 5th February says Malaysia Hindu Sangam.
Recently, the devotees were in confusion about whether Thaipusam is on the 4th or 5th! This is because the Pusa star falls on the month of Thai on the 4th.
This is Malaysia Hindu Sangam’s explanation. Pusa star falls on Saturday, 4th of February at 1.13 pm. However, it is customary that Thaipusam celebrations start with the Tirtha Utsava for Lord Murugan’s Vel in the morning. Tirtha Utsava will be performed on Sunday morning. Hence, the Thaipusam celebration will be on 5th February.
Malaysia Hindu Sangam advises the devotees to remove any doubts and celebrate the Thaipusam on 5th February!
