Chantaburi Church Thailand

 

Chantaburi Church, Thailand

There are many churches in Thailand but the Chantaburi church stands out for an interesting reason. Chantaburi is a small province in Thailand, the place is well known for its gemstone market. The province does boast of a few other attractions like a few waterfalls and a seaside nearby, the church is what we are going to talk about. The church in this province is not far away from the gem market area and is in a way connected to the gem merchants There is a statue in the church that wears a glittering white robe, the entire robe is studded with white sapphires and it is interesting to note how all those sapphires became available.

Like most of Thailand, this province is predominantly composed of Buddhists. There have been many cases where local people from Chantaburi have converted to Christianity for various reasons. The church in Chantaburi is never very crowded it is a very nice place to visit and you should not forget to notice the gorgeous statue that has robes studded with white sapphires. We wish to keep religion and politics out of our website, the mention of this church is made mainly to show the connection between the local gem merchants and the church. The white sapphires were donated by many of the local gem dealers. It was a community effort and the completed work is truly interesting irrespective of what religion you follow.

The shimmering look on the white portion of the robes in the above statue, is the result of the glittering white sapphires that have been added to the robe. The sapphires were voluntarily donated by the gemstone dealers in the gem market which is not far from this Church in Chantaburi Thailand. It is very likely that many gem merchants who donated their sapphires were not and are not devout Christians, but the gesture was more to show a spirit of participation a supported community activity.
