January 31, 2018 was Meak Bochea Day. It is a Buddhist holiday and celebrates not only in Cambodia but also in Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. Buddha preached precepts at the bamboo forest of the royal castle in March in lunar calendar three months before his death. At that time the enlightened 1250 monks gathered at the same place without any prior notice. It is a day to commemorate this miracle. The stupa of this temple is very big. Even near this stupa, people who were sacrificed during the Khmer Rouge administration are buried. During the Buddhist ceremony, flowers were being served.
