Wat Klai Kang Won

Wat Klai Kang Won

Wat Klai Kang Won was pointed out to us by a restaurant owner who runs a good restaurant across the rice fields from this temple. It is also referred to as Khao Saraphat Si Charoen Tham. Upon leaving our ID at the temple's gate, we were able to experience a very special place of meditation in the middle of Thailand. The huge temple ground includes 2000 rai and more than 12000 animals, like deer and peacocks. After we visited with a nun on the top of the hill, who showed us the artificial mountain top, which actually forms a huge dome covering one of the largest footprints we had ever seen, we had a long visit with the abbot of the temple. Our visit took much longer than anticipated and we sincerely enjoyed visiting such a special place.
