More About This Experience

Water blessings are a traditional Cambodian practice that date back to ancient times. The blessings take place in an ancient pagoda in the countryside, just south of Siem Reap. Receive a blessing of your own during this water blessing experience at the Wat Bo Banteay Chey Pagoda. The first blessing involves vessels of blessed water being poured over your head while the monks chant harmoniously as they wish you good luck, safe travel, and a long life. Following that you will change into dry clothes and sit with the monk inside the pagoda accompanied by a light sprinkling of water. At the end of the blessing, your wrist is adorned with special red ties that signify the blessing performed.
