Khao Phansa, or the Buddhist Lent, is the time when all Buddhist
monks must stay in their temples. In Ubon Ratchathani, a unique
festival is held each year that highlights the skills of talented
local artisans as well as displays of religious devotion.
Elaborately carved beeswax candles of various sizes and shapes
are exhibited in high-spirited processions around the city
before being presented to local temples.
