Cambodia Trip 2009 - Phnom Penh - Street Scenes

As were walking from the Royal Palace towards the Mekong River, we saw many stalls selling prayers' offerings. The offerings are meant to be blessed in the temple and then released in the Mekong River.

The coconuts are not meant for eating but to be used as offerings.

Some even bought tortoises to be released in the river as part of the buddhist kindness and compassion consistent with Buddhist beliefs.
