Wat Phra Kaeo

 Wat Phra Kaeo is located in a rural setting in Sankhaburi. As peacefully as it looks on the pictures, as modern it was when we visited. Techno beats were filling the air from the nearby temple buildings preparing for a festival. Unbelievable, but that's what I love about Thailand. The main Buddha image has some old stone inscriptions on it's backside, which I would have missed, unless a bunch of friendly Thai kids had pointed it out to me. The chedi was build during Ayutthaya times and mixes Lopburi and Dvaravati styles. 

Go back one temple   Go forward one temple
