Pictures of Chinese couple taking their pre-wedding photos at the crematorium at Chalong temple have gone viral among Thai social media users.
Some social media users criticised the couple and their entourage, suggesting the location is inappropriate for a photo-shoot that included a man kneeling down in front of a woman in a red bridal gown right in front of the crematorium.
The user who posted the photos explained with a caption: “This is Phuket. Why don’t you go propose inside the burner! Even the crematorium is also a place for photo shoot? They do not know appropriateness.”
The comments also agreed that the location was a bad choice and suggested that the temple should be free of this kind of activity.
However, some comments noted that the couple may not fully understand the meaning of the location, while other called for government officials to put up signage.
