Monks Morning Rounds in Luang Prabang
March 11, 2013 - Luang Prabang, Luang Prabang, Laos - Buddhist monks walk past Wat Nong Sikhounmuang and collect alms during the tak bat in Luang Prabang. The 'Tak Bat' is a daily ritual in most of Laos (and other Theravada Buddhist countries like Thailand and Cambodia). Monks leave their temples at dawn and walk silently through the streets and people put rice and other foodstuffs into their alms bowls. Luang Prabang, in northern Laos, is particularly well known for the morning 'tak bat' because of the large number of temples and monks in the city. Most mornings hundreds of monks go out to collect alms from people. (Credit Image: © Jack Kurtz)
