Info

In Ban Phan Luang, across the Nam Khan River from Luang Prabang, Laos. Villagers kneel outside their homes, waiting to offer sticky rice or cereal bars to passing monks. Every morning at dawn, Buddhist monks walk down the streets collecting food alms from devout, kneeling Buddhists, and in the main part of Luang Prabang, from some tourists. They then return to their templess (also known as wats) and eat together. This procession is called Tak Bat, or Making Merit.
