Temples of Thailand

Translated by - OMEGA

 

In towns and villages , the temple complex are community centers. They are well known  as places, which besides for traditional prayerthey are provided for the many meetings, discussions and exchange of gossip. Although in there mostly live monks , they are often subject of hosting for cultural centers and schools. At festival time they quite often become common places for retail sale of any goods . These facts often misleadthe  tourists who forget the sacred nature of these places. On this occasion - always remove your shoes when entering a temple and put on appropriate clothing that is respectful to visit a place like this . Certainly all the Buddha statues are sacred . Never allow yourself to go over a  statue. If you take a photo in front of a statue never forget to showa respect . When you sit in the temple is a must to keep in mind that your feet should in no way point to Buddha.
