Photographer's Note

This photo of Buddhist monks was taken outside of a temple on the grounds of Phnom Penh Royal Palace.



The First Buddhist Monks

The Buddha and his first disciples had no fixed place to call home. They slept in the open and begged for their food. Their only clothes were robes they patched together from cloth taken from rubbish heaps. The cloth usually was dyed with spices such as turmeric or saffron, which gave it a yellow-orange color. Buddhist monks' robes to this day often are called "saffron robes."
