Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Thawonwararam (a little tongue twister) is proof for a big Chinese influence in Kanchanaburi town. The architecture and signage is Chinese. Inside the temple is Phra Buddha Sathapornmongkol or Luang Phor To, a beautiful late U-thong period image. The temple sits quietly along the famous river Kwai. Well, not so quiet because of the dogs. The temples of the town are a nice alternative to visit after all the River Kwai attention.
