Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Pa Lelai
Wat Pa Lelai stands just south of Wat Chimphli on Koh Kret. It is now a deserted monastery and the only remaining structure is an Ayutthaya-style congregation hall. In front of the hall a Buddha image with a money and an elephant represents the generally entitled Phra Phuttha Palalai image. This episode in Buddha gestures means that His needs were taken care of even by the members of the animal kingdom. This is a good image for those born on Wednesday evening.
