Morning alms procession

Morning alms procession

Each morning, hundreds of Buddhist monks line up in their deep orange robes and walk along the road to receive alms from the people of Luang Prabang, who wake up early to cook the rice and prepare their offerings.
This ritual has been a part of the area’s religious heritage ever since Buddhism was introduced to Laos in the 14th century.
