Mae Hong Son Chong Pra Procession

The “Chong Para” in the Thai Yai dialect means a castle made of wood, covered with colorful perforated papers and decorated with fruits, flags and lamps. It is placed in the courtyard of a house or a monastery as a gesture to welcome the Lord Buddha on his return from giving sermons to his mother in heaven, according to traditional belief.
Another activity to celebrate the occasion is dancing in which the performers are dressed in animal costumes, according to the belief that both humans and the animals were equally joyful in the return of Lord Buddha.
