Water Festival

 

Nation Wide

Thingyun, Myanmar water festival, takes place toward the end of the hot, dry season and ushers in the Myanmar New Year. This festival is also celebrated in neighboring Theravada Buddhist countries, songkran in Thailand and laos, Chaul Chnam Thmey in Cambodia. The festival lasts three or five days. Standing on bamboo stages erected along the streets, people splash water on passersby. Powerful water pipes douse people driving by in jeeps and trucks. Children use water pistols to drench their friends, relatives and anyone else in range – only monks and the elderly are safe. The water symbolizes the washing away of the pervious year’s back luck and sins. On New Year’s day itself, all the water throwing ends. This day is celebrated by releasing captive fish and birds as acts of merit, and special feats are held for monks.

Kyauk-se

Dancing elephant festival is also another famous festival in Myanmar. It is held in kyaukse, near Mandalay. It is a marvelous performance of two men together to dance in rhythm. A huge elephant figure is made from bamboo and paper. Men take the town to the accompaniment of Dobat and Drums. The elephant dances circles three times at the foot of the hill to pay homage to the shwe tha lyaung pagoda. It is a dance that requires precise rhythm and timing in order for the elephant dances to maintain unity inside the elephant figure. People from far and near come to visit kyaukse and watch the elephant.
