Wat Song Kuson

Wat Song Kuson

Wat Song Kuson reminded us of the sad story many abbots can tell in today's times. As an old Ayutthaya temple it can only function today with the protection of the local police who actually sits in front of the Ubosot asking questions with regards to your visit. A story we have heard all along this small country road south of the city. Most temples do not even open anymore and the monks cannot go on alms round because criminals will break in and steal the Buddha images. This is also the reason why we here on these web pages refuse to show pictures of the Buddha images, unless they are already widely publicized.
