Makha Bucha Day – Public Holiday

February 23, 2010

PHUKET: Makha Bucha Day, which falls on the full moon of the third lunar month, commemorates the Buddha’s ordaining of 1,250 monks who had arrived unannounced from afar only seven months after the Buddha began his teachings. It is also the date the Buddha delivered his Fundamental Teachings – just months before his death.
