Chin Lone Festival, Mandalay

Date: 29th June - 9th July 2017

Chinlone is a traditional sport in which teams of around five players keep a cane ball, known as a chinlone, from hitting the ground by using parts of their body other than their hands.

The annual festival is being held for the 87th year, with performances taking place at a small stadium in the Mahamuni Pagoda compound from 9am to midnight daily.

A ceremony paying homage to 52 senior players will be held on the second full-moon day of Waso.
