Mon

Mon

The Mon have a long and proud history, even longer than the Bamar. The Mon state is centered on Mawlamyine in the southeast portion of Myanmar. Though mostly assimilated with the Bamar culture, the Mon continue to use their own language and have managed to retain their own state within the Union of Myanmar. As Buddhists, they have their own calendar of Theravadin festivals.
