Prabarana Purnima & Air-balloon Festivals

The Rakhines and the followers of Buddhism of Cox’s Bazar town, Teknaf, Ukhia, Maheskhali, Ramu, including Chakaria fly paper-balloons at night at different places in the fulfillment of their holy wishes.

On the occasion of the wish-fulfillment-full-moon, the Ramu’s Buddhists hold the festival of floating ships of traditional papers in the river Bakkhali. Children-adolescents-young boys and girls play their music, perform dances and sing songs then float ships made of artistic papers.
