Wat Samet

Update 2008: Built in 1877, Wat Samet lies between the villages of Ang Sila and Bang Saen south of Chonburi. The mural paintings inside the temple depict the ten methods of bodily and emotional detachment. It also shows lifestyles of the fishing villages. The first time we visited was back in 2003 and the temple was closed. We were more lucky in 2008 when we were able to get the doors opened for us. Besides the beautiful murals there are three Buddha images flanked by two statues of monks in the Ubosot. We also loved the doors and windows which were excellent examples of mother-of-pearl inlay.
