Khao Pansa Day

Start of Buddhist Lent Period

Wat Boonsamphan in East Pattaya was one of the many temples chosen for worshipers to go along to and take part in the

Khao Pansa Day or Buddhist Lent which falls on the 18th July, when monks must stay in their temples to pray and study Buddhist scriptures over the period. Early in the morning devotees visited the temple to be blessed by the monks, to light ceremonial candles and present offerings to the temple and in exchange for making merit they hopefully gain good fortune during the year ahead.
