Night-time candle-lit ceremony at Wat Phan Tao on Visakha Bucha Day 2014 21

Visakha Bucha Day is one of the three big Buddhist holidays in Thailand. Wat Chedi Luang is the main place in Chiang Mai where the Buddhist people go to make merit. They walk three times around the large Chedi carrying incense and flowers. Some carry candles.

 

Wat Phan Tao is located right next to Wat Chedi Luang and is known for it's beautiful candle-lit scenes. The procession also takes place around this Wat. Even better, the Monks were all carrying candles.
