Flooding from the Chao Phraya River has caused an old wall in the Temple of Dawn to partially cave in, threatening the temple’s main pagoda.

The cave-in, about two metres in length and about half a metre wide, is no more than 10 metres from the main pagoda, assistant abbot Phra Khru Arun Thammanuwat said, adding that the structure could collapse or start leaning if the damage increases.

He said the complex would be closely inspected to see if the foundation of the pagoda has sustained any damages. The monk said he personally felt that the damage would possibly expand and affect the entire wall.
