Loy Krathong Festival on 21 Nov 2010

Date: 21st Nov 2010
Time: 7pm to 11pm
Location: Wat Chaiya Mangalaram Buddhist Temple (also known as the Reclining Buddha Temple)
Contact: 016-4105115

The festival is celebrated on the full moon of the 12th Lunar month in which devotees pray to the Water Goddess as well as repent for what they have done.
One can let go of their troubles as they released their lotus vessels into the sea.
Tiny paper flags were placed in the vessels which were sold for between RM8 and RM180 each.
This year's the temple is campaigning for an Eco-friendly  Krathong.  The public is invited to participate. The main criterion is the krathong must be made of degradable materials.
