The Tourism Authority of Thailand, Nakhon Si Thammarat Office, is inviting Buddhist followers and interested travellers to join the annual Hae Pha Khuen That Festival 2016 at the highly-revered Phra Borom That Chedi which houses the holy relics of the Lord Buddha.

Known as one of the most important religious events for Buddhist devotees in the South of Thailand to celebrate Makha Puja day, the event will highlight the cultural procession called ‘Hae Pha Khuen That’ or the carrying of the cloth called ‘Phra Bot’ which is a long piece of white cloth painted with the story of Buddha’s life to the temple. The cloth will be used to wrap around the giant stupa that houses the Buddha’s relic. It is believed that by taking part in this ceremony will bring good fortune and success in life.

Other highlights are, such as, special exhibition on the history of Theravada Buddhism in Thailand, demonstration of the ‘Phra Bot’ cloth weaving, praying competition, folklores and cultural performances, a fair featured in traditional local market style, as well as local booths selling local products.
