Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival

October 6 - October 23

Phaung Daw U Pagoda is the most famous pagoda at Inle Lake. During the Burmese month of Thadingyut, usually between September and October, the festival celebrating this pagoda is held, with festivities lasting up to 20 days.

A large boat with a bird motif is built and statues of the Buddha are paraded around the lake, moving from village to village. The high point of the festival is when the deities arrive at the main town of Nyaung Shwe, where most pilgrims come by boat to pay their respects.
