Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Khrok Khrak
The wooden Ubosot of Wat Khrok Khrak (or Krok Krak) is the interesting part to see at this temple. Inside is a Sukhothai-style of Luang Phor Phu, wearing glasses. Actually all images of the temple are wearing glasses or sun glasses. The story we were told is that one man who had an illness with his eyes promised to give sunglasses in return to the Buddha if he got cured. Well, I guess it worked as all the images now wear glasses.
