Religious Place Visit _IYCAP (Yangon)

Interfaith Youth Cooperative Actions for Peace (IYCAP) alumni, together with networking partners from Yangon Region, held a Diwali celebration and paid a visit to a Hindu’s place of worship.

The event aimed to provide youths with opportunity to learn about and value the diversity, different religions, customs, traditions, and history of the religious festivals and promote mutual friendship among youths from different backgrounds by broadening their understanding of the value of religions.

During the event, U Min San Naing, Hindu religious teacher, gave a brief account of the history of Diwali and Hinduism, followed by a visit to Shiri Sila Mawkali Thamar Temple.
