Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Ton Son
Only one picture? Well, my favorite situations came together here - Temple closed, dogs chasing us around and construction work on the ubosot. From the outside there isn't much to see, except for the beautiful gable. Depending on where the sun stands, one has to walk outside the temple walls in order to be able to see it. Around the temple is the old town and narrow streets with lots of traffic. Wat Ton Son is a good example for a Chinese style prayer hall as it was built by Chinese merchants in 1911.
Update 2008: We went back two more times only to find the temple closed. Even on Buddha day it was not open. Nothing had changed in terms of the dogs. We didn't feel save and left again on both occations.
