27thTazaungdine lamp on lotus festival of Andaku Mogaung Yele Pagoda in Meiktila was held for three days from 10 November (14th Waxing of Tazaungmon) to 12 November (1st Waning of Tazaungmon).
Full moon day of Tazaungmone was the busiest day with crowds flocking to observe and participate in the lamp on lotus festival said pagoda trustee board chairman U Khin Nyo.
A maze festival was held last year in Meiktila but it was not held this year. This year, a Matho robe weaving event and a meal donation festival was held in Naga Yone Maha Bodhi Pagoda while lamp on lotus festival was held in Andaku Mogaung Yele Pagoda. ShweSawlu Pagoda, Shwemyintin Pagoda, Dhamma Thukha Shwezigon Pagoda, Wun Daw Pyae Pagoda and other pagodas were also teeming with devotees and pilgrims on full moon day of Tazaungmone. — Chan Tha (Meiktila)
