Wat Nantharam

Wat Nantaram

 

One of our most favourite temples in Thailand! We went to Wat Nantharam first in 2004 and again in 2008. The second time we actually arrived during a festival. After the ceremony we spoke with the abbot of the temple and a friendly monk was kind enough to show us every detail of the temple and explained a lot of the history of the temple to us. Even new Buddha images which were just placed in the temple at this very ceremony were shown to us. It is a Shan-style wooden building with a multi-tiered roof, a ceiling which is decorated with colored glass and 68 pillars covered with black lacquer and gilded. The principal Buddha image is made of teak wood and is done in Mandalay-style -  Perfect Beauty!
