Short Paragraph on Yaosang Festival

Here is your short paragraph on Yaosang Festival:

This festival is observed in the Manipur Valley and is somewhat similar to the Holi Festival.


The Yaosang falls on the full-moon day of the month of Lamdra (Phalgun) and lasts for five days.

On the inaugural day, the villagers construct a small hut made of bamboo and straw at an open arena and is called ‘Yaosang’, i.e., the hut of the sheep.

The image of Gauranga (Mahaprabhu Shri Chaitanya deva) is placed in that hut by the priest in the evening of the first day.

The Religious songs are sung to the accompaniment of drums and cymbals. At the end of the singing, the idol is taken out and the hut is set on fire. It is believed that the ashes of the bon-fire are very sacred and hence the villagers or gather there, smear their foreheads with the ashes.


Thabal Chongba dance is performed on each night by young boys and girls in the open arena and during day­time they play with coloured water.
