The Buddha Pujaniya Festival of the Mawtinsun Pagoda in Ngaputaw township, Pathein district, Ayeyawady region, will be held for 15 days according to the Board of Trustees.
As the festival is usually held from 19 February (1st Waxing day of Taboung) to 5 March (full moon day of Taboung), the relevant officials are now making preparations.
The Buddha Pujaniya Festival of Myat Mawtinsun pagoda has been held every year for more than 100 years, and it is also the famous seaside pagoda festival of the Ayeyawady Region. In the past, the festival was a long-term festival that was held for a month.
In the past, stalls were sold through an auction system during the Pagoda Festival, but the Pagoda Board of Trustees will be responsible for the convenience of vendors during this year’s pagoda festival.
As the pagoda festival is approaching, the cleaning is being done on the hill on which the pagoda is situated, the pagoda mountain, in the wells and ponds, on the main pagoda and its surrounding stupas.—TWA/KZW
