Cha-Am Municipality is preparing for an event to commemorate Krom Phra Narathip Praphan Phong, the founder of Cha- Am’s city plan and the one who makes the city famous for Thai and foreign visitors. The event, held for the 2nd time after last year, will take place on 11 October 2012, the day when Krom Phra Narathip Praphan Phong passed away.
Its aim is to allow local people in Cha-Am to honor and express gratitude to him, said Mr. Nukul Pornsomboonsiri, the Cha-Am Mayor, adding that this commemoration event will be organized annually. Activities for this year’s event include a Buddhist ceremony and a worship ceremony for Krom Phra Narathip Praphan Phong, both of which will be carried out by Buddhist monks at the monument of Krom Phra Narathip Praphan Phong on Narathip Road.
Afterwards, local people and visitors are allowed to pay homage to the founder of Cha-Am. On this occasion, the Cha-Am Municipality would like to invite both local people in Cha- Am and visitors to attend the event on the above-mentioned date.
