Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Phai Rong Wua
Wat Phai Rong Wua was our first temple to visit in Suphanburi. The temple lies along one of the roads leading from Bangkok to Suphanburi's City district. The huge Buddha image above can be seen from far across the fields and houses. This temple had so many Buddha images, buildings, chedis and other replicas of important Buddhist buildings that it threw us far beyond our time schedule. If you visit here, bring a lot of time with you. The construction of the large Buddha image above has been finished as we visited in 2004 but there was still a huge but unfinished reclining image close to the entrance of the temple.
