Add a Point to the Map
This charity organization has been established by dr. Utain Techapaiboon more than 100 years ago for arranging funerals for unidentified corpses, such as accident victims. Between the foundation and the Li Thi Miew Shrine are plenty of funerary paraphernalia stores. Most interesting is the '''Da Feng Zu Shrine''' inside. It is a very lively shrine with many Thai-Chinese coming over to worship the Da Feng Zu God, make a merit and get rid of their bad fortune. Many satin banners and paper offerings such as fake money are burned to ensure that the spirit of the deceased has lots of good things in the afterlife.
