Ban Baat – The Last Monks Bowls

The residents of Ban Baat inhabit the only remaining village of three established in Bangkok by Rama I (King Phraphutthayotfa; r 1782–1809) to produce bàht, the distincti-ve bowls used by monks to receive morning food donations. Tourists – not temples – are among the customers these days, and a bowl purchase is usually rewarded with a demon-stration of how the bowls are made.
