Declared the national sport in 1971, archery is a highly popular game played throughout the country, especially during festivals and public holidays. Using bamboo bows, teams of archers shoot at targets only 30 centimetres in diameter from a distance of 120-130 metres. Each player get two arrows to shoot from one range and the oppositions players take the next shot in alternative system. With every hit on the target, teammates celebrate by dancing on both the ranges. The points are calculated on the number of hits by the teams.
