An Orthodox temple to be built in Thailand

The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Kingdom of Thailand, Hegumen Oleg (Cherepanin), and Chairman of the Orthodox Church Fund in Thailand, Deacon Daniel Vanna, made a working visit to the parish of All Saints in Pattaya (Chonburi Province). The trip was occasioned by the decision of the parish to purchase in the city land and the construction of an Orthodox church.

After studying all possible options based on the available funds, a 400 square meter parcel of land was obtained in the northern part of the city. In the future there is a possibility to purchase an adjacent 200 square meter plot of land. As a result, a contract was signed for the purchase of land, and the Pattaya's land department registered the new owner - the Orthodox Church in Thailand.
