CHIANG MAI: -- A temple has built what it claims is the highest sand pagoda to celebrate Songkran’s northern style.

 

The sand pagoda, which has a base that is 10 metres wide and 10 metres long and is 15 metres high, is located in Jedlin Temple in Muang Chiang Mai district.

 

It was built with the cooperation of novice monks and local residents.

 

The pagoda is a five-layered square shape, with the sand used to create it donated by local residents.
