Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than donated the Kayin national dress of his grandfather, the martyred leader Mahn Ba Khaing to National Museum (Nay Pyi Taw), at a ceremony held in the National Museum (Nay Pyi Taw) yesterday morning.
The ceremony was attended by Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than and wife, Union Minister for Religious Affairs and Culture Thura U Aung Ko, Permanent Secretary, directors general, deputy directors general and officials from Amyotha Hluttaw and Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture.
At the ceremony, Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than said the dress donated is a Kayin national dress worn by Grandfather Mahn Ba Khaing. Grandmother had passed on the dress down the family and was maintained as a family heritage. As Grandfather Mahn Ba Khaing was one of the nine martyred leaders, the dress is of historical value and instead of the family retaining it, it is more beneficial to donate it to the National Museum (Nay Pyi Taw) and display it for the public to view, said Mahn Win Khaing Than. He then donated the dress which was accepted by Union Minister Thura U Aung Ko. Union Minister Thura U Aung Ko expressed his deep appreciation to Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than and wife for donating such a valuable and historical dress.
