Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Chong Lom
Wat Chong Lom or Wat Sutthi Wata Wararam is located in Samut Sakhon province on the mouth of the Tha Chin River into the golf of Thailand. The huge Ubosot shows beautiful murals on the walls and in a hall next to the Ubosot with a statue of the highly revered monk Luang Phor Kaeo are hundreds of birds nesting inside the roof (so take cover...). Located in the Ubosot is a beautiful statue of Luang Phor Hin Daeng, of late Ayutthaya-style. We went to the temple in 2004 and again in 2009.
