Running for 15 days, this festival is dedicated to the ancestors and blessing the spirits of the dead. Bon Pchum Ben is one of the most culturally significant events in Cambodia.

Each household visits its local wat and offers food to the monks for their assistance in blessing the souls of late ancestors, relatives and friends. Pagodas are crowded with people taking their turn to make offerings, with many staying behind to listen to Buddhist sermons.
