The temple is founded by our permanently affiliated monks:
Phrakru Patomarathikun (Senior Monk)
Phra Sutthichai Khantiko (Junior Monk & Next Chairman)
Official recognition of Thailand
The temple has been officially recognized as a temple in Buddhist society.
The Buddhist hierarchy was referred to respectfully asking for the monastery to be recognized as a bona fied temple. In August 2018, we went to the headquarters in Copenhagen, where the top responsible monk for Buddhist affairs throughout Europe is located.
The monk arranged a meeting in Thailand and Europe to discuss and vote on our application to get the temple recognized. This meeting was convened and the vote was in our favor to officially recognize the Buddhist temple.
