Stacks of long bamboo poles are placed on the ground at Wat Wang Wiwekaram, a famous temple built by the revered late abbot Luang Pho Uttama. The temple is located in a Mon village in Sangkhla Buri district, on the Thailand-Myanmar border in Kanchanaburi province.

Villagers tie the poles together and put them on supports to form a great network of bamboo water pipes for the Songkran festival. From above, the large structure looks like a giant paper fan.

“Building the bamboo water pipe network is a way of making merit because it gives everyone the chance to bless the monks,” said Piman Sirihong, 49, who was born in the community.
