Poi Loen Sip Et Mae Hong Son Thailand Travel Guide

Poi Loen Sip Et Mae Hong Son Thailand Travel Guide Poi Loen Sip Et is another Buddhist tradition held in Mae Hong Son to mark the end of the Buddhist Rain Retreat. As the majority of people in Mae Hong Son are devout Buddhists of Tai Yai ethnic origin, the Poi Loen Sip Et ritual is a spectacular event that reflects the long-established culture of the Tai Yai. Chong Para, a Tai Yai phrase, is used to describe traditional castles made of wood, covered with colourful perforated paper and decorated with fruits, flags and lamps. On Monday, the residents of Mae Hong Son bring their Chong Para to Phra That Doi Kong Mu temple, and then march around the town. After the procession, the Chong Para are placed in the courtyard of a house or a monastery as a gesture to welcome the Lord Buddha on his return from heaven to Earth. Other activities include dances for which the performers don animal-like costumes. This is based on the belief that in bygone days, both humans and the animal kingdom were equally thrilled at the return of the Buddha. As dusk falls, lanterns are lit around the town adding an enchanting quality to Mae Hong Son at this time of the year.
