Construction status of the Orthodox temples in Thailand.

The Representation of the Russian Orthodox Church met to discuss the progress of the construction of the Orthodox temples in Thailand. The meeting was headed by the Representative of Russian Orthodox Church in the Kingdom archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin) and attended by the Chairman of the Orthodox Christian Church in Thailand Foundation priest Daniel Wanna. The architect for the temples and the head of the construction company were also present.

The meeting stated the following:

Currently three Orthodox churches are being built in the Kingdom of Thailand:

  1. In Bangkok in honor of St. Nicholas, archbishop of Myra in Lycia
  2. In Koh Samui, Surat Thani province, in honor of the Holy Ascension
  3. In Pattaya, Chonburi province, in honor of the Protection of the Mother of God

The State Department Commission of Architecture and Construction in Bangkok reviewed the building petition for an Orthodox temple at Sukhumvit Soi 101/1, as well as attached projects of other buildings. Objection in principle to the construction of an Orthodox church at this location in Bangkok did not arise from the commission members. However, the Orthodox Church in Thailand was suggested some changes to the project. The main change is the base unit of the temple. The construction of buildings higher than 15 m calls for the earthquake-resistant foundations. The height of the proposed construction of the Orthodox temple in Bangkok is approximately 30m. It was decided that the architect of the temple makes the necessary changes to the project and presents the complete project in light of additional comments.

Due to changes in the project, the Representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand blessed the Foundation Committee of the Orthodox Church in Thailand to determine specifically the increase in the budget and make those financial calculations.

Presumably, the temple’s construction will start in Bangkok in the second half of October 2012.

Construction of the temple is 85% completed. While completing the building structure, a changed was decided in order to increase the area of the temple directly on the top level. Completion of construction is scheduled in 3-4 months. Meanwhile, priest Daniel Wanna informed those present about the lack of funds for the construction of Ascension Church in the amount of 4,000,000 Baht (about 130 thousand dollars), expressing the hope that the parishioners of other parishes in Thailand will support the Orthodox believers in Samui in this difficult situation.
