It is the 10th Myanmar month in the middle of the cool season (December-January).

In ancient times, it was the month for the equestrian festival held for virtually the whole month, as it involved competitions in horsemanship, bowmanship, lancing and sword fighting, shooting and martial arts.

It was in effect an occasion to select heroes.

It was found to have begun in 674 ME under the reign of Pinya Thihathu but researchers in Bodaw Paya’s reign held that it began in the reign of King Nyaungyan in Inn-wa Period.
