A funeral procession in Siem Reap

Cycling around the town of Siem Reap (US$3 for whole day's hire of bike) I saw this huge funeral procession. Apparently, a revered monk had passed away. In the procession were monks, soldiers, police officers, students and other mourners. A large gong was carried, and every now and then its booming sound could be heard across the town. BTW, Siem Reap is easily explored on foot but a bicycle enables you to cover a lot of ground much faster. I even cycled to Angkor Wat, about 10 km away.
