Phaung Daw U Festival, Lake Inle, Burma

During the Phaung Daw U festival a barge decorated as a mythical bird carries four golden Buddha images around the lake from village to village to bless the village monasteries. There are over 60 monasteries in the Inle Lake area and at least one monastery at each village so the festival takes place over a 20 day period.
