2-Hours Cambodian Buddhist Water Blessing
Take part in a sacred Buddhist ritual when you travel to the Wat atvea Pagoda outside Siem Reap and receive a water blessing. Travel through the countryside and, at the temple, choose from 2 types of blessings that will each bring you cleansing and luck.
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 1-hour water blessing experience at the Wat Atvea Pagoda.
Choose from 2 forms of blessings from the monks living at the pagoda. The first begins with the monks chanting harmoniously as they wish you good luck, safe travel, and a long life. It is accompanied by a light sprinkling of water. The second is a longer ritual which involves vessels of blessed water being poured over your head while the monks chant. For this ritual, you will be provided with a sarong to change into so that your clothing remains dry.
At the end of the blessing, your wrist is adorned with special red ties that signify the blessing performed.
