Thai gathering at the Raven

Two Buddhist monks from Thailand visited Ballaugh over the weekend of October 10th and 11th, to speak with the local Thai community and followers of the faith in the Isle of Man.

In the absence of a Buddhist temple on the Island, Mrs Carr decided to hold a get together, so anyone interested could see the monks, in keeping with tradition in her homeland.
