Wat Don Chedi Sam Ong

Wat Don Chedi Sam Ong

Wat Don Chedi Sam Ong is located right next to the famous Three Pagoda Pass on the Burmese Border. While the border was closed again during our visit in February 2008 the market was quite busy. Unfortunately this small temple is being overseen (or ignored) by most visitors. However, it would badly need funds and support for it's project to help children with AIDS. A small hut in front of the temple sells cotton products, which have been woven inside the temple along with other items in order to raise funds. Inside the temple is really only one open sided hall with a Burmese Buddha image inside which is being used by people working in the nearby factory as a shaded lunch point. The Ubosot looks like it was never finished and it is also filled with people seeking shade from the sun. Most of the monks and the children live in the buildings down the hill.
