Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Ban Rai
Wat Ban Rai is an important temple for Isan people. It is located NW of Nakhon Ratchasima close to the village of Dan Khun Thot. Many worshippers come here to pay their respect to Luang Phor Khoon Parisuttho, a well known monk in Thailand. He has helped many people directly and is using the donations from the temple for Universities and Schools. During our visit in 2006 we had to wait for Luang Phor Khoon Parisuttho to come out of his quarters and the following visit went rather quickly for the long line of worshippers.
