A traditional boat racing competition was organized in Mandalay on Friday to mark the successful completion of hoisting a new htee atop the historic Chanthaya Pagoda in Chanayethazan Township and renovating the Chanthaya Bridge.
Altogether 18 teams participated in the two-day contest, which is separated in two levels, amateur and professional.
The first-ever boat race event took place 26 years ago for the same reason.
