On the third day of the Maha Thingyan water festival, the Nay Pyi Taw Council Area was busy with people enjoying splashing water on each other, donating food and snacks, and doing good deeds yesterday.
Famous pagodas and monasteries in Nay Pyi Taw were also alive, with pilgrims fasting, meditating, and paying homage in the morning. At the Nay Pyi Taw mayor’s water-splashing pandal and the Office of Commander-in-Chief (Army) Thingyan pandal, famous national artistes and the choral dance troupes from the townships in Nay Pyi Taw entertained with their performances. The pandals also offered refreshments to participants of the festival.
In addition, the Walking Thingyan was held in the Nay Pyi Taw Water Fountain Park, and prominent places, including beach resorts in Zeyathiri Township, were also bustling with holidaymakers from across the country. People also built makeshift tents in villages, wards and townships in the Nay Pyi Taw Council Area and enjoyed the festival happily and safely.
Ensuring people celebrate the festival in peace, relevant authorities provided security and facilitated the traffic. The Myanmar traditional Maha Thingyan is held to welcome a new year by pouring water to remove the dirt from the old year and prevent it from entering the new year. It is a traditional festival that people celebrate with love in the country. — Ko Gyi Htein/GNLM
