Today in Penang – Hanuman Jayanti / Chithirai Pournami Indian Festival

Today on the road to the Botanical Gardens for a spot of jungle walking I stumbled across an Indian Festival.  It’s still on, so go and visit if you are interested.  I asked a lady who explained a little about it, but here is a link I found on the web: http://www.indiaonlinepages.com/festivals/hanuman-jayanti.html

Rather belatedly, after most of the events were over, I received more information from the Penang Tourist Office. You can read more here: http://www.visitpenang.gov.my/portal3/penang-tourism-news/1641-chithirai-pournami-celebration-2013.html
