Dancing elephant festival, a marvelous performance of two men together to dance in rhythm is also another famous festival in Myanmar. It is held in Kyaukse, near Mandalay. A huge elephant figure is made from bamboo and paper. Men take the town to the accompaniment of Dobat and Drums. The elephant dances circles three times at the foot of the hill to pay homage to the Shwethalyaung pagoda. It is a dance that requires precise rhythm and timing in order for the elephant dances to maintain unity inside the elephant figure.
