Aquatic Phansa Festival

At the start of the Buddhist Rains Retreat, known as Khao Phansa in Thai, Buddhists take part in processions to take giant candles to their local temple. The idea is for monks to use these candles for the entire three months of the Rains Retreat. These processions are usually done on land, but the people along Ladachado Canal in Ayutthaya do it slightly different as they go to their local temple by boat.
