Yesterday police and officers inspected the temple.
The abbot of the temple said everything is being done following legal process and nothing is fake.
They have a permit by law from the Chonburi Buddhism office that allows a company to rent some part of the temple land for their business, the Abbot told The Pattaya News and law enforcement.
Some other news media are claiming the temple has built a fake ‘Chapel’. It is not a chapel; It is a sermon hall that is built by the temple. The Abbot is sure that everything is legal per Thai law.
