Magha Puja At Wat Chedi Luang, Chiang Mai, Thailand

28.February 2013

Thailand

We had a chance this week to peek into the Buddhist life of Thais. Monday was Magha Puja; one of the holiest days in Buddhism and the one day when most Thai Buddhists will visit their local temple to ‘make merit’.

It was a fascinating day that ended well into the evening.

Here’s a peek.

    We were there in January. Wat Chedi Luang was one of the best of many many Wats in Chiang Mai. Only a few tourists when we were there; not as lucky as you.
