Monks WEB Morning Alms-Giving in Battambang, Cambodia

It was only after a few weeks of roaming around Northern Cambodia that I actually learned about alms-giving. I had the opportunity to ask my trusty tuk tuk driver and new found friend about the various customs that I had been observing. He explained that every morning, the Monks would walk around town in a single file line with pots draped in their linen, to allow the community to give them rice as a form of alms-giving.
