Bodh Gaya (Bihar), Nov 3 : Monks from Thailand offered prayers for world peace and sculpted out an idol of Lord Buddha in Bodh Gaya on Sunday.

The 33-member delegation offered prayers for the well being of the people of the entire world.

"We have come from Thailand to build Lord's Buddha idol," said Payap Shinawatra, a monk from Thailand.

Later, the monks got together and worked continuously for 12 hours to sculpt out a statue of Lord Buddha.

The monks said that according to the culture of northern Thailand, making a statue of Lord Buddha from dawn to dusk, without any break, fulfills one's wishes.

Lord Buddha, founder of Buddhism, had attained enlightenment at Bodh Gaya in Bihar.
