We had the immense good fortune to be in Vientiane during the That Luang festival, and attended it both in the evening of 4 November, when "wax castles" are brought to be carried around the sanctuary and then offered to the monks, and early the following morning.
On the morning of 5 November, people gather in and around That Luang, first for prayers and then to make offerings to the monks (Takbaat).
