Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival

February 27, 2015

By Admin

Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda is the most revered pagoda in Shan State. During the Burmese month called Thadingyut ( October/November ), 18-days long festival is held when the Phaung Daw Oo buddha statues are carried around the Inle villages for the locals to pay respect to. Another interesting pride of Inle is the long boat racing where groups of Innthars use their legs to row the boats.
