Photographer's Note

In Vientiane's Wat Si Muang like in all Buddhist monasteries the busiest building is the Viharn where the most important Buddha statues are situated, the monks are chanting daily and devotees can meet monks for advise. No wonder that the most popular Wat of Vientiane also sees a steady stream of devotees who want to ask a monk to solve problems from sunrise to sunset. The devotees bring gifts for the monks like necessities (soaps, towels etc), fruits and of course some banknotes to be fixed to the money tree next to the monk.
