The sun worship festival that promotes well-being, prosperity and progress, includes a lot of rituals such as fasting, abstaining from drinking water, standing in the water for very long periods and offerings to the setting and rising sun. The scene of people standing in the waters with bamboo trees and lots of colourful decorations is astonishing, and the power of will of these people is definitely remarkable. Join this unique festival at least as a spectator to see the determination and thankfulness of the people to the sun that sustains all life on Earth.
