Shwesettaw Mannchaung Elephant Camp showcases pachyderm performance

Shwesettaw Mannchaung Elephant Camp conducted an elephant performance show for the first time to entertain the Minhlakyin villagers from Minbu (Sagu) Township who make a pilgrimage tour to Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda using bullock carts, according to an official of the elephant camp.
Locals from Minhlakyin village make pilgrimage tours to Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda using bullock carts this year as a tradition, and they made a tour with the use of 37 bullock carts on 21 March this year. They built camps near their bullock carts by Mann Creek until 1st wanning of Tabaung to pay homage to two sacred footprints of the Lord Buddha daily.
“We made the very first entertainment with four clever elephants on 26 March, aiming at raising knowledge of locals and children of Minhlakyin village about the harmony between the elephant and people in addition to the skills of elephants, and we also want to honour them as they preserve the traditions of residents to date in the use of bullock carts on their pilgrimage tour. In the coming year, we will welcome them with elephants and entertain them,” said U Htet Naing Aung, assistant manager of the camp.
The elephants greeted the visitors individually, played musical instruments, danced with Pathein parasols, played football, performed the U Shwe Yoe and Daw Moe dance and took batches together with the children during the performance. Moreover, the Minhlakyin residents fed the elephants. — Maung Maung (Minbu)/KTZH
