Chiang Rai Province and Lao Celebrate Asalha Puja & Buddhist Lent

CHIANG RAI – Chiang Rai vice-governor Sakchai Wongkanit, Chiang Sean District chief officer Pinit Kaewjitkongthong and the ecclesiastical governor of Chiang Saen district have led a group of administrative officials and Buddhists to Wat Phrathat Pha Ngao to take part in a Buddhist Lent candle delivery ceremony.

The participants then traveled to Tonpheung city in Laos to present the candles to Wat Don Sawan and Wat Thong Thap Phattanaram, highly-revered temples for both Lao and Thai people. The activity was aimed at strengthening the friendship between residents of the two countries.
