Happy Pchum Ben Festival
Pchum Ben, also known as Ancestors’ Day or ‘Hungry Ghosts Festival’, is a 15-day Cambodian religious festival starting on Saturday 24th September. In Khmer, Pchum means ‘to gather together’ and Ben means ‘a ball of food’. This holiday is the most important festival in the Khmer religious calendar. It is a time for Cambodians to pay their respects to their ancestors of up to seven generations.
