Salak Yom Lamphun – Wat Hariphunchai – tree of gifts

Salak Yom ceremony at Wat Phra That Hariphunchai in Lamphun. This is an important annual ceremony for the Yong people, the ethnic minority of Lamphun.

The celebration centers around building bamboo structures, some nearly 20m-tall, using strips of the wood that are dyed and to which they tie offerings for monks. The building process can take a week or two to complete and is seen as a demonstration of handicraft skills for the Yong girls.
