Temple celebrations

Lao New Year - temple celebrations

The Buddhist temples play a key role during Lao New Year.  Several Lao New Year's events take place at the temple itself.

Specifically, one of the tasks during this time are when the temples bring out many of their Buddha statues on to a table with blessing water.  Visitors are encouraged to pray and make blessings while sprinkling water on to the statues.  In fact, it's a tradition to visit as many temples as possible to complete this task.
