Every day the monks have at least one ceremony in the main assembly hall. When we visited it was at 16:30. The monks come to the assembly hall with their yellow caps on.
There were many young monks at the time of our visit and they didn't object to our cameras, in fact many asked to be in the picture. The older monks often said no.
