Sacred Red Cloth Ceremony

Red Cloth Ceremony

Every year, the sacred red cloth on Phra Samut Chedi is changed. It is first paraded through Samut Prakan and Phra Pradaeng and then in the afternoon it is brought to Phra Samut Chedi by boat. It is then taken around the temple three times before being wrapped around the stupa. The parade marks the start of the ten day temple fair which is said to be the longest running temple fair in Thailand. It is certainly one of the biggest as it takes place on both sides of the river.
