My Experience:

Nov 2010, I had the pleasure of accompanying another friend and fellow photographer to the Thai Kathina Ceremony which was filled with cultural learning, festivity and entertainment. Did I mention the delicious fresh Thai food?!

We drove there and as soon as I entered the parking which was nothing but an open grass area, carefully organized and divided with ropes from one end to the other, I realized the professionalism of the organizers of the event.

Being the music Lover this image was the first thing which caught my eyes

After getting carried away in the sound of music, I started exploring the venue.

The Bazar:

The Kathina Bazzar

The Bazzar view

The Bazar looking set with many merchants selling fresh food and all sort of other Thai items, was a scene you couldn’t miss.

Every merchant greets you with a smile and offers you a peek at their stands

I let the images take you through the rest of my journey on this event
