Thailand - Norway relations


"A 2.000-year-old Tipitaka (Buddhist scripture) has been presented to Thailand by the Conservation Institute of Skøyen, Norway. The Tipitaka was enshrined at Wat Saket in Bangkok. The content of the Tipitaka was written on palm leaves and was discovered in the mountains of Bamiyan in Afghanistan by the Conservation Institute. The institute purchased the relic from a British merchant and decided to give it to Thailand to improve ties between the two nations as well as preserve Buddhism”.
