Oct 9 Thai Temple I

Phnom Penh - way to go, Peyton, Elaine, Mike, Joani, and Michelle!

"Thai Temple, Raynham"

You are NOT going to believe this but the LARGEST Thai Temple outside of Thailand is in Raynham, MA! Yes, bedroom community, Raynham! And, it's sitting in the midst of residential neighborhood at that.

I have driven by this church as it was in the construction stage. I waited patiently for its completion. On this day I was able to walk the perimeter and shoot away.

An attempt to enter the Temple was killed when I found out the entire facility is shuttered during the lunch break!

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

the Grand Palace, which is arguably the most popular sightseeing attraction in the city.

over four hundred Buddhist temples in the city, so it is not unusual to see monks wearing saffron-colored robes when they are out gathering morning alms.

Considered to be the food capital of Asia, if not the world.

Helpful hint: This city is called the “Venice of the East” because the Chao Phraya River, which runs through the city, is connected by several canals. Tourists can travel around the city by cruising the river, taking the underground subway or the elevated sky-train.
