Many devotees and tourists flocked to pay their respects to Phra Phuttha Chinnarat at Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat in Phitsanulok province on Saturday (July 4).

Since the reopening of the monastery where Phra Phuttha Chinnarat is enshrined, a steady stream of visitors have been queuing up to enter the monastery in order to pay respects to what is considered the most beautiful and classical Buddha figure in Thailand.

The temple has strictly implemented measures to contain the spread of Covid-19, such as allowing visitors to enter or exit the monastery only one way, screening body temperature, and limiting the number of visitors inside the monastery to not more than 50 people.

"Every visitor must wear a face mask before entering the monastery," a staff at the temple said.

The staff expected the number of visitors to the temple to be much more than usual during the Asalha Bucha and Buddhist Lent Days from July 4 to 7 this year.

"The temple will allow devotees to walk with lighted candles in hand around the monastery on Sunday from 3pm to 5.30pm," the staff added.
