Culture Minister Sukumol Kunplome said that a survey by specialists from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) of historical sites in the 600-year-old former capital had found damage from flooding such as flaking, mildew stain and efflorescence on murals, particularly at the Choeng Tha Temple which was especially damaged.
The Ministry is also considering digging a moat around the city, as once existed in the past, to act as a flood barrier for the city.
Thai and Japanese experts will conduct another survey
to assess the damage to historical sites following the flooding on December 18.
