Thingyan celebration held with joy in Nay Pyi Taw

The Nay Pyi Taw Council area became alive with teeming crowds on the second day of Thingyan (Akya).
The people kept Sabbath at the pagodas, including Nay Pyi Taw Upatasanti Pagoda and the monasteries.
The people also visited famous places like Hlay Khwin Taung beach resort, Kyi Taung jetty and Awai Yar Dam in Kyi Taung Village-tract of Zeyathiri Township.
During the Thingyan holiday, the officials take patrol or security measures to offer a safe environment for the visitors.
A visitor to Hlay Khwin Taung beach resort said, “We came here from Pyinmana. There are many visitors here like us. As I am staff, I am so glad to spend my holidays with my family. I also thank the officials of the beach resort for their security measures. May all Myanmar people be wealthy and happy in this New Year.” Similarly, the residents constructed water-throwing pavilions and some offered Satuditha in respective townships, wards and villages.

Myanmar Thingyan symbolizes the washing away of the previous year’s ills and sins in preparation for the New Year’s goodness. Sprinkling water on other people is also intended to wash away one’s sins of the previous year. — Naing Aung/GNLM
