The Dance of Pilgrimage to the Sandaw Shin Pagoda (Rakhine)
Watch or Listen About it - 1

At the Rakhine State, pagodas can be seen on top of most hills. Of these pagodas, the Sandaw Shin Pagoda (wherein Buddha's hair is enshrined) located on top of Nilar Paba hill on Phayonkar penisula at the mouth of the Kaladan River, is an especially famous and historic pagoda. This pagoda was renovated by King Sanda Thuriya and was successively maintained by Kings throughout periods of history which include the Wesali period. During the Mrauk-U period, Chief Queen Soemai, wife of King Phalaung, undertook the renovation of the pagoda. She performed great acts of charity in honour of the occasion. A pagoda festival was also held. The festival of the Sandaw Shin Pagoda is still held every year during the month of Nataw. The group dance invites other nationals of the Union to join the people of the Rakhine State in a pilgrimage to the pagoda. The group dance is performed to traditional Rakhine songs in order to portray the history of the Pagoda.
