On the road to Nirvana…

The Visakha Puja is a traditional festival which is dedicated to Buddha himself, a celebration of the three phases of his life that awakens the whole of Thailand… Processions and various religious corteges will process through the streets, never far from the pagodas built in honour of Buddha's birth, awakening and ascension to Nirvana.

Buddhism is strong throughout most of South-East Asia, and so this festivity takes on a fun and friendly nature.

On Tuesday 28 May 2019 :
- Tuesday from 12:00 to 00:00

Sanam Luang Square
