PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Tamils who are unable to visit a temple for the Ponggal celebration can now watch the proceedings online, thanks to live streaming by Tamil online portal Vanakkam Malaysia.
The portal will be streaming live the Ponggal celebration from the prestigious Kortumalai Vinayagar Temple in Jalan Pudu Lama, Kuala Lumpur, from 4pm today.
Vanakkam Malaysia executive director Thiaga Rajan Muthusamy said this would be the first time a Ponggal celebration would be streamed live.
The portal will also be streaming live tomorrow’s chariot procession for Thaipusam, which will begin at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Jalan Bandar at 10pm, as well as the goings on at Batu Caves from 4pm on Thursday until late Friday.
To follow the live streaming, log on to http://vmpru13.com/.
