During the construction of National Freeway No. 3, the contractor went bankrupt; consequently, the Thai workers recruited by the contractor suffered financial difficulties and had no money to return to their country. With the kind assistance from Master Shih Tian Hua, abbot of Wuji Cihsyuan Shengtian Temple, who obtained the support from Haiming Temple in Mituo and its believers indirectly through the news media with help from the Tianliao Police Station, these Thai workers were able to exchange labor for enough money to return home within the prescribed two-year period. As a way of reciprocating, each of the workers used a stone to create the prototype of Shihtou Temple. Later, volunteers such as Jhan, Guo-Hua completed the internal decoration using rocks and seashells. The construction took approximately 12 years to complete. The touching story of Thai workers repaying the master’s kindness by building a temple received news coverage twice. The fame of Shihtou Temple (Stony Temple), or Tailao Temple (Thai Workers’ Temple), thus rapidly spread, and it has become a new tourist attraction in Tianliao.

これはAsia領域の概要です

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
