July and August are the months of lotus flowers. Locals say that lotus flowers are now the official flower of their ‘gun’ district, and that they are very environmentally friendly flowers loved not only by Buddhists but every local resident. The region has about 25 acres of lotus pond, and 11 acres of the total pond are covered by lotus flowers.
The Lotus Flower Festival is prepared by the local autonomous government and local Buddhist temples as well as cultural and art organizations. The festival is mostly comprised of traditional performances and promotional events for lotus flowers.
