Beggar donates B1m to temple

- +

The celebrity beggar at Wat Rai Khing, a popular temple in Nakhon Pathom province, on Thursday donated another one million baht to the temple after he contributed the same amount and made headlines last year. 

Aiam Cambhiranon, 63, can be seen every day, from dusk to dawn, sitting in front of the main temple at Wat Rai Khing in Sam Phran district, about 56km from Bangkok.  

Mr Aiam has begged at the temple for 34 years and does not have any relatives to look after him.
