Wat Makhām Pathumthānī Collection

This is one of six collections of Thai-Mon palm leaf manuscripts digitised by the EAP1123 project team.

The manuscripts were kept upstairs from a library (of regular books) and was part of a larger collection of disused or surplus temple furniture, cabinets, spires, thrones, etc. The collection was well-ordered, apparently the work of a team from the National Library. The collection included palm leaf manuscripts and parabaik in Mon, Pali, and Thai, in the Mon, Khom, and Thai scripts. Palm leaf manuscripts appeared to be all on the usual religious topics. Of particular interest were the illuminated manuscripts here.

Custodial history: The abbot had no specific information about the provenance of the texts.
