Buddha in Majesty.

At dawn, the many ceremonies honouring Buddha, his teachings and his disciples engulf the city. The Buddhist flag will be raised, hymns will be sung, offerings of flowers and candles placed at temples and places of worship.

On this day, Buddhists eat only vegetarian meals and increase the number of good deeds they carry out. Statues of Buddha are lit up and you can watch a number of processions taking place on the streets.
