Ubosot of MCU
We were finally able to visit the Buddhist University of Maha Chulalongkorn University (MCU) in Wang Noi District of Ayutthaya. Some of our friends had invited me there and besides the full tour of the University, lunch with the monks and other activities, we also spend some time to visit the Ubosot of the campus. Though new, it is a wonderful building with amazing temple murals inside the main chapel as well as in the cloisters underneath.
The paintings are all contemporary, showing high monks of the Kingdom, the Dalai Lama, as well as scenes with King Rama V, who founded this university and the current King Rama IX and the queen. Really interesting are also the paintings depicting human hell on one side of the basement and the tsunami disaster on the other side.
