Urumi Melam Continues to Mesmerise the Crowd 

The ‘urumi melam’, a traditional Indian musical instrument continues to mesmerise the crowd during Thaipusam. The catchy and uplifting beats accompany Kavadi bearers, giving them the strength to finish their journey to Lord Muruga on top of Batu Caves.
