CELEBRATING the consecration ceremony of the newly built Sri Poomarathammal Temple in Gelugor, Penang, felt like a mini festival.

Devotees stood along the road to catch a glimpse of the grand kumbhabishegam (consecration ceremony) as chants of ‘Om Shakti!’ were heard along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah.
