Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Khao Phra Bat
Khao (Mountain) Phra Bat is the hill to the south of Pattaya, the famous beach town in Thailand. I have to admit that I had a very negative feeling about even driving to Pattaya, after all the bad things I had heard. So, visiting this temple on the first attempt was so full with negative energy, that I just had to come back in the following week. After all, this was a temple with a replica of Buddha's footprint! It's not a big temple but it still has many beautiful statues, a mondop building and some great views over the bay of Pattaya.
