Morning Alms In Luang Prabang

Monks receiving charity

The monks were just receiving charity

Shot in the city of Luang Prabang, Laos.

The Buddhist monks walked the streets for asking alms every morning in this town. It became one of the tourist attractions. I woke up early to see the ceremony. The locals were kneeling down by the wayside and waiting for the monks coming.

In the meantime, the monks were coming. Every monk had their own alms bowls. They were receiving alms from the believers one after another. The Buddhist monks were held in respect here.
