Last day of the celebration, which is the peak of the festive period, was delayed till the weekend to allow more devotees from outstation to participate in the procession.

A wooden chariot, bearing the deity Shri Ambaji and pulled by two bulls, left the temple in Ujong Pasir at 7pm.

It travelled a 12km route going through Taman Melaka Raya, ,Jalan Hang Jebat, Jalan Temenggung, Jalan Bukit Cina, Taman Laksamana Cheng Ho and Jalan Bukit St John before returning to the temple in five hours.

A number of devotees, some barefooted, followed the chariot as a sacrificial feat.

The chariot made several stops along the journey for devotees who lined the roads to make fruit offerings to the deity.
