Pagoda Festivals of Ta-baung

 

The last month of Myanmar calendar falls in March. The days are becoming warm and the nights are cool and pleasant. Numerous seasonal flowers such as inginn, tharaphi and gangaw bloom in Tabaung.

It is a month of pagoda festivals. The harvest is safely home and people can look forward to leisurely days of enjoyment. The building of sand pagodas marks the Tabaung Festival. Not content with having festivals in honour of the existing local pagodas, people have to build pagodas of their own, even if they are ephemeral creations built of sand. The festival of sand stupas is communal, with every one, young and old, participating.
