Phaung Daw Oo by CitizenFresh Phaung Daw Oo by CitizenFresh
Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda is a notable Buddhist site in Myanmar (Burma), located on Inle Lake in Shan State.The pagoda houses five small gilded images of Buddha, which have been covered in gold leaf to the point that their original forms cannot be seen.Annually, during the Burmese month of Thadingyut (from September to October), an 18-day festival is held, during which four of the Buddha images are placed on a replica of a royal barge designed as a hintha bird and taken throughout Inlay Lake. One image always remains at the temple.
