Monk on Horseback

Discussion in 'Festivals & Events - S.E. Asia' started by Rod Page, Apr 11, 2011.

  1. Preliminary Notice:

    The well known 'Monk on Horseback' made famous in the multi-award winning movie "Buddha's Lost Children" will be officiating at the ordination of 100 novices at the remote Tham Pa A Cha Thong (Golden Horse Wat) situated in the mountains just north of Mae Chan on 19th April starting at 9am.

    The monk, a retired Muay Thai champion, provides food, education & shelter to a multitude of young hilltribe boys made homeless or orphaned through the ravidges of poverty, drug abuse, human trafficking & prostitution riding on horseback throughout the remote mountains of Thailand & Burma.
