Where To See Pongal And Thaipusam, Thai poosam Festivals In Tamil Nadu 2014It looks like Pongal and Thaipusam are going to be held in mid January 2014 when I'll be in Tamil Nadu and I wanted to know where the best place to see these festivals would be. Right now I am thinking about Madurai but there is very little info on the Thaipusam festival in Tamil Nadu so I don't know how big a festival or how intense it is. I've seen it in Malaysia where they do a lot of piercings, is it the same in Tamil Nadu.
Thanks for any help.

2I've seen references to it being banned but you can see youtube videos from 2013 and there are posts from some of the indian newspapers talking about the different celebrations in Chennai or Madurai. It still looks to be going strong at Palani too. From what little I can find I think the piercings have been banned but not the whole festival.
