Nearly all of the 1.2 million baht facility was funded out of the pocket of Chaimongkol Abbot Punya Rattanaporn. About 200,000 baht came from donations. Thongmuan Changhai will be the community office’s president.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome and city councilors present a Phra Khru Vibun Dhammakit image to Punya Rattanaporn, abbot of Wat Chaimongkol Royal Temple inside the new community office.
Located next to the parking lot, the new office is more spacious and out of the way of religious buildings. It also will offer massage services for the general public. The funds will go toward operating expenses for the community office.
