Buddhists in Singapore and the world over celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha on Vesak Day, a time of joy, peace and reflection. 

One of the most popular rituals you will notice on Vesak Day is that of 'bathing' the Buddha. Worshippers crowd around basins or pools decorated with garlands of flowers and dominated by a small central elevated statue of the child Siddhartha. Ladlefuls of water are scooped from the basin and poured over the statue, in remembrance of the legend that the infant prince was showered with the waters of nine dragons soon after he was born.
