Almsgiving at Chao Fa Ngum Park

Almsgiving at Chao Fa Ngum Park

My aunt and cousins were among the many devotees gathered at the statue of Chao Fa Ngum in Vientiane, Laos this morning to give alms and take part in a ceremony to mark the 10th anniversary of the statue’s installation.

King Fa Ngum is known as the great leader that united the Lao Lane Xang Kingdom and is revered by all the Lao people. A ceremony is held to pay homage to the statue each year. This year it seemed there are more people from near and far flocked to Fa Ngum Park, where they stood in line for the Almsgiving Ceremony to commemorate the great leader.
