Buddhist temple for sale due to odor

UPI News Service, 01/21/2013 

A Buddhist abbot in Thailand said his temple is being listed for sale because of the constant "stench" from a nearby pet food factory.

Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the abbot of Wat Or Noi in Nakhon Pathom, said he wants to sell the temple, which was founded in 1990, for $67 million and donate the proceeds to a foundation, the Bangkok Post reported Monday.

"The bad smell is from the pet factory, which is just [328 yards] from here and it is causing problems for monks and novices here," the abbot said.

He said he plans to move to the forest to practice dharma once the temple is sold.

"Temple for sale at low price. The stench from the pet food factory is unbearable," read signs posted around the area.

Supoj Urjitsurakul, manager of the pet food factory, said a third odor control system is being added in an attempt to control the stench.

"Monks from Wat Or Noi temple have visited the factory. I gave them a tour and showed them that we are really trying to improve things. I tried to contact the abbot but he was busy so he sent the monks instead," Supoj said.
