Alms Giving Ceremony

As the sun rises hundreds of Monks line the streets of Luang Prabang, flocking from there temples to receive there daily meal. They walk along in a saffron laden line and the locals will give them gifts of food which is placed in the monks basket.

The “Alms Giving” ceremony has been going on since the 14th century, it is a peaceful and spiritual experience to behold and it is a great insight into one of the Lao traditions.
