via Bangkok Post, 03 October 2021: We’re getting lots of heavy rain in Thailand, and one 18th-century temple at Ayutthaya has been flooded because of the overflow of the Chao Phraya River.
A Buddhist temple built in 1750 during the Ayutthaya period has been flooded after a flood prevention wall collapsed on Sunday morning.
A section of the wall on the southern side of Wat Chula Manee in Bang Ban district collapsed at about 5.30am after the Chao Phraya river overflowed, inundating communities around the temple.
The grounds of the ancient temple were left 2 metres under water, damaging about 20 pagodas containing ashes of local residents’ ancestors.
