A total of 997 shops will showcase their wares during the upcoming Phaungdaw-Oo Pagoda festival in Meiktila, which will take place from 21 to 30 September.
Over 400 stalls will be set up at the eastern side of Meiktila Lake, with more than 500 on the western side of the lake, according to a pagoda trustee.
In the past, the shops had also been located on the left and right sides of the Yangon-Mandalay Highway, but this will not be the case this year, the trustee added.
The ancient pagoda in Mandalay Region sits at the bank of Meiktila Lake, which will feature traditional boat races during the festival. The prize ceremony stage is currently under
construction.
