“Wian Tian” is the word in Thai. “Wian” means circle. “Tian” means candle.
“Wian Tian” is an action for Buddhist Religious ceremony day, such as Visakha Puja, Magha Puja, and Asalha Puja days.
In the evening, each temple in Thailand holds a candle light procession called a wian tian (wian meaning circle; tian meaning candle).
Holding flowers, incense and a lighted candle, the monks and congregation members circumambulate clockwise three times
around the main chapel or pagoda in the temple - once for each of the Three Jewels – the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha.
