Monk's Bowl Village review Rate it

Buried in lanes within the block where the timber merchant street Thanon Boriphat meets Thanon Bumrung Muang, Descendants of Ayutthayan refugees maintain one of Bangkok's last craft trades. They use a Khmer method of beating out alms bowls from eight strips of metal, representing spokes of the Dharma wheel. Among the five family workshops, the community leader at 71 Soi Ban Baat ensures quality control. Despite the fact that they are a symbol of non-attachment the bowls are prized by collectors, particularly when decorated and lacquered.
