✍️ Hello everyone. Today I brought everyone to visit Thai temples again. A few days ago it rained heavily. Some areas in the district were affected by the storm causing flooding. My wife and I rarely travel anywhere. Today too, the sky was overcast and rained most of the day. In the morning we thought that we would not go anywhere because we were afraid of flooding. But after I read information from local news agencies. So I know which areas are not flooded. So me and my wife decided to go to Mae Ngon Subdistrict in the afternoon after we finished our lunch at home. Because we want to visit the temple that is the center of people in Mae Ngon Subdistrict. This temple is called Wat Mae Ngon.

Wat Mae Ngon is therefore an important temple of this community. When there is a traditional festival or Buddhist Holidays, this temple will be the center of Buddhist activities and tradition between the people of the community and the monks.
