The last day of the Buddhist Lent in Myanmar is a very important day for the Burmese. Also known as The Lighting Festival, devout Buddhists celebrate the descension of the Lord Buddha from the heavens as locals will decorate their houses with colourful lights, organize parties and partake in various events, ranging from carnivals to religious activities at pagodas and temples.

This is also the time for pay homage to monks, parents, teachers and the elderly, asking them for forgiveness for any wrongdoings one has done over the past year.
