Over 2,000 female dancers will be taking part in a Buddha statue worship ceremony in Phitsanulok, Thailand from April 29 to May 5.
A dance rehearsal was recently held in preparation for the event.
The dancers, who comprised of both young and elderly women, will wear a white attire for the dance.
The event will be held at Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, a temple which was founded in 1357 by King Lithai who ruled from 1347 to 1368.
The statue is called Phra Phuttha Chinnarat.
While only 1,660 dancers were designated for this year's ceremony, which marks the temple’s 660th anniversary, over 2,000 women had applied and all were accepted.
