Buddha birthday

Today, April 8th, is Buddha's birthday. Many temples place a statue of baby Buddha that points a finger at sky and ground. People pour sweet tea over the statue in order to celebrate Buddha's birthday.

I visited some temples, and poured sweet tea over a statue of baby Buddha. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and windy today. So, I could not take good pictures.

I introduce some pictures I took two years ago April 8th. The day was fine and cherry blossoms were beautiful.
