Doi Suthep temple
undergoes first major
restoration for 600 years
Recent reports state that the ongoing restoration of the main stupa at Doi
Suthep temple is running out of government funds as of the 150 million baht
grant requested, only 7 million baht was approved.
The stupa, traditionally believed to contain relics of the Lord Buddha, was
considered to be at risk due to moisture accumulating in the ancient brickwork
due to poor drainage and high humidity, has been under restoration for several
months. The work is being done in 3 stages by skilled Salah Lanna craftsmen, who
dress in white out of respect for the reliquary which contains the relics.
