Khmer New Year at Wat Munisotaram

Welcome to the year of the rat.

Down in Hampton, Minnesota, Khmer New Year was celebrated in style, in spite of the bitterly cold weather and, yes, occasional flurries of snow. Not as big a turnout as I would have expected on a nice day, but the temple was crowded. We decided not to march outside around the vihear, but inside, which worked out well. There were chayyam dancers, Brahma’s angel daughters, and lots of cameras. A few select photos are below the break. Go to the flickr page to see more.
