Event Details

This is the biggest and most important pagoda festival in Central and Upper Myanmar. Villagers come to the festival in their decorated bullock carts and camp on the plain for the duration of the festival. The full moon day of the Myanmar month of Pyatho, which falls on January, marks the height of the celebrations, with one thousand monks from a hundred villages in the vicinity arriving to accept offerings of filled alms bowls. With their crops having recently been harvested, farmers have the time and the money to enjoy themselves.
