Photographer's Note

In none of the other countless Wats - Buddhist monasteries - in Vientiane devotees will offer so many flowers. decorations and fruits like bananas or coconuts to Buddha then in Wat Si Muang. Around the huge complex almost every house is producing flower garlands and decorations as well as yellow bee wax ornaments like the one at right. The stream of visitors, overwhelmingly females of all age groups, is endless every day. They all are looking for fulfilment of wishes like finding love, having a healthy baby, preferably male, fixing marriage problems etc.
