Wat Maha Samanaram 

Wat Maha Samanaram 

Wat Maha Samanaram Ratchaworawihan stands where the foot path up to Khao Wang starts. That’s why it is also called Wat Khao Wang. Inside the ubosot are beautiful murals depicting the pilgrimage to Lord Buddha’s footprint and the four stages of life. We were lucky when we visited and were able to participate in an initiation ceremony for a monk. One of many that I have seen but it is always a new experience to join in the prayers. On the way up the hill wait many hungry monkeys for the quickly annoyed tourists.
