Wat Phra Dhammakaya has defended the temple's mass thudong pilgrimage through downtown Bangkok.

Under a light rain late on Monday, Pope Benedict emphasised family and faith during a Mass celebrated before Raul Castro and tens of thousands of people including Cuban-Americans on a pilgrimage to the island.

The temple's interior walls house colourful murals depicting angels and priests worshipping the Lord Buddha's footprint and Phra Buddha Khosajarn's pilgrimage to Sri Lanka.
