The Ancient Civilization of Sukhothai

Wat Traphang Ngoen

Wat Traphang Ngoen sits, like many others here, in the middle of an island covered with lotus blossoms. Traphang Ngoen means 'Silver Lake'. Unfortunately, at this temple we also had some of our experiences with tourists, who obviously don't know how to behave properly in a temple district. Though every guidebook and pamphlet educates people not to sit or stand on Buddha images, there is always some who can't read or are just ignorant.
