Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Bang Hua Suea
Wat Bang Hua Suea is located right on the eastern bank of the Chao Praya river in the eastern part of Samut Prakan Province. We had some friendly people showing us around the temple. Besides an old Buddha statue and Luk Nimit stones which were over 300 years old, the temple has a huge Ubosot building. The temple's murals are a mix of paintings and plastered figures which stand out of the paintings. Very beautiful. Outside of the Ubosot are several Buddha statues and one standing image shows a rare phenomenon only at the end of the rainy season. Without any external source of water present, waterdrops appear along the Buddha's right hand and then drop into a bowl underneath.
