Shin Malai festival originated in Shin Malai’s preaching of WEsandara Jataka on the full-moon day. It is marked by making floats in the shape of barges, putting on it a thousand fruits, a thousand lumps of rice and the thousand lights to go around before offering at pagodas. It is also called the barge festival or thousand-ful festival. It has been on the wane.
