Wat Sri Chomphu Ong Tue

Luang Phor Ong Tue

Also called Wat Nam Mong, this is an old Lao-style temple, which houses the largest principal Buddha image in the province of Nong Khai, Luang Phor Ong Tue. It is believed that the image was cast in 1562 and is a mix of Lanna and Lan Chang styles. The handsome statue of Luang Phor Ong Tue is one of my favourite Buddha statues and we visited this far away place twice now, once in 2002 and again in 2006.
