Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Ban Na Mueang
Visiting Wat Ban Na Mueang will take some time. There is so many special things at this temple, that it takes time. The Ubosot is built in the form of a royal barge and behind the temple buildings is another building in the form of a boat, which is actually located in an artificial lake. The main gate of the temple is a huge 3-headed Elephant, large enough to drive through. A newer building which functions as a viharn contains a huge seated Buddha image and offers a great view onto the Ubosot beneath it.
