GEORGE TOWN: A large number of devotees will take turns to pull the golden chariot during the Thaipusam celebration which is expected to attract 1.5 million visitors.

Penang Hindu Endowment Board (PHEB) chairman Dr P. Ramasamy said the devotees would be aided with a pushback tug during the procession from the Maha Sri Mariamman Temple in Queen Street to the Arulmigu Balathandayuthapani Hilltop Temple in Waterfall Road on Sunday.
