Thai authorities Thursday inspected Wat Talom in Bangkok’s Phasi Charoen district following complaints that 400 foreign Buddhist monks there took alms in the afternoon and selling offerings.

Immigration Bureau officials, police and Office of National Buddhism found that many foreign monks – from other countries such as Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Laos – stayed in tents set up in the temple compound and that 12 Indian monks and one novice had no passport.
