Going to Church at a Buddhist Temple

 This Buddhist temple is right next to my hotel in downtown Bangkok so I decided to check it out
 Buddhists buy flowers, food, and incense to offer to Buddha at the temple.  These faithful are putting gold leaf onto the statue of Buddha
 I happened to be there for their church ceremony.  The people kneel on the floor and talk (even on cell phones!) while the monks pray.  At the end of the ceremony the people give the monks flowers and food.
