Wat Prayunwong

Stone Garden at Wat Prayunwong

Wat Prayurawongsawas Woravihara doesn't look anything like the temples you would expect to see. The legend says that wax from a candle formed a strange looking piece, which was rebuilt in stone. Today it sits in the middle of a pond and hosts many small houses, which contain the ash of the dead. In the center of the rock formation is a cave with a reclining Buddha image.
