Wat Khun Phrom

Wat Khun Phrom

On our way back to the Hotel (remember we walked) we spotted a temple across the river and spontaneously took a ferry to get to it. Wat Khun Phrom is obviously an ancient temple as well, even though it doesn't look like it and is still very much an active temple. We were told it is more than 450 years old. A very friendly monk showed us around in the Ubosot and explained some of the details of the temple. Two large seated Buddha images were in front of the Ubosot in, what we thought was the gesture of the "miracle of sravasti", however there was a slight variance in the position of one of the hands.
