One of the biggest religious festivals in Cambodia, Pchum Ben holds a wonderful tradition of feeding monks in temples in order to satisfy the hungry ghosts. These creatures are believed to have huge stomachs and always remain hungry, so by feeding monks people believe they are bringing merit to their ancestors. All wearing white as a symbol of mourning, Cambodians are carrying lots of food to the temples asking monks for blessings.
