The fascinating story of the Elephant Dance originates from the time of King Anawrahta. The king sent a replica of one of the Buddha's teeth via a white Elephant who came to stop in the hills above Kyaukse and it was here that the Shwe Tha Lyaung Pagoda was built.From that time on,people celebrated this historical event every year by paying respect to the pagoda and making elephant shaped cookies offerings to Buddha.In 1238 (Myanmar Calendar), U Ngal Gyi created the Kyaukse Elephant Dance festival with elephant costumes to pay respect.Our talented performer shows "Kyaukse Elephant Dance" at Karaweik Palace !!!?
