CHIANG MAI — A fire broke out early Monday morning at a temple in Chiang Mai’s Chai Prakan district only an hour after the cross-year prayer. No injuries were reported.

 

At about 2am on Monday, Mahingsawas Temple caught fire just two hours after prayers and merit-making were conducted at midnight to mark New Year’s Day.

I'm guessing this is a fireworks related incident, shame, it's a great temple.

Yes it is a lovely temple and a real shame.  Not as old as you would think but that doesn't detract from the artistry involved.
