The Very First Myanmar Thanakha Festival in Yangon

Activity Pictures from Myanmar Thanakha Festival in Yangon

Being the cultural symbol of Myanmar, Thanakha holds a place in every Myanmar people's heart, either from culture or value point of view. Decorated with traditional puppets, rare cultural face masks, and famous colorful Pathein umbrellas, last week's Thanakha Festival (from 12–17 February 2019) was fantastic, simply because the event reminded us what Thanakha is to Myanmar people and what value it still holds even in the modern days.Many Thanakha product companies were participating in the festival and gave a free service of drawing patterns — leaf shape, circles, fan shape — on visitors' cheeks. In addition to the modified Thanakha product or cosmetic brands, the Thanakha block sellers from remote cities also joined the event. Plus, many food shops were also there selling many ethnic and local foods.Here are some of the memorable festival pictures, of course, most are our main character — Thanakha blocks.

The Very First Myanmar Thanakha Festival in Yangon​

When you are in Myanmar, you will notice the yellowish paste found painted on the faces of Burmese women and children, called Thanakha, everywhere. Thanakha paste is made by grinding the bark and roots of Thanakha trees, and mixing it with water on a stone slab called a Kyauk-Pyin. This paste is applied in stripes, circular patches, or ornate leaf patterns on the cheeks, noses, and forehead leaving yellow trails. Its sandalwood scent is another reason for its attractiveness. Myanmar people wear it on face, neck, hands and legs as a natural and efficient sunscreen against the hot tropical sun.​
