In Thailand, the anonymous author sent a parcel with a brick to the historical park of Ayutthaya, which he had stolen from the temple of Wat Chayvatthanaram. The administration of the park announced this on April 24.

In the parcel the thief also put a candle, incense sticks and a letter with repentance. Translation of the letter was published by the local newspaper The Nation.

I visited Wat Chayvatthanaram and took home a brick. Then I felt uneasy and fell ill for no reason. I would like to return the brick and apologize for my deed, which I did because of ignorance.

Please accept my gratitude [for helping with the return of the brick to the place].

PS I attach incense sticks and candles for the rite of forgiveness.

When exactly the man stole a brick, it is not specified. In the post, the administration also warned other tourists that stealing anything from a historical place would be considered a damage.
