Visiting Wat Hua LamPhong + RuamKaTanyu Foundation (Donation Coffin) ~ Bangkok (Part 1/2).

Wat Hua Lamphong is a Royal Buddhist temple, third class, in the Bang Rak District of Bangkok, Thailand. It is located on Rama IV Road, with Silom Road and Suriwong Road in Bangkok's modern business district to the southeast, and Si Phraya Road to the northwest. It is an approximately 1 km from the city's main Hua Lamphong railway station. Next to temple Wat Hua LamPhong was located the Chinese temple with famous RuamKaTanyu Foundation of donation coffin for good merit. We will share more photos in "part 2" for RuamKaTanyu Foundation.

Normally could seen cattle at any other temple, and here Wat Hua LamPhong have too. I think the general idea is that you make merit by buying food for the animals and save them from being slaughtered. And some other offering items been for sell.
