Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
The Ancient Siam Civilization of
Wat Mae Nang Pluem
Also located outside the old city of Ayutthaya and the island, this temple is a real treat. Both, Viharn and Ubosot contain beautiful seated Buddha images. The plain wall in both buildings allows full focus on the Buddha images. Behind the old Viharn is a large bell-shaped chedi which still contains some lion statues at it's base. When we visited during Visakha Bucha Day, bus-loads of of school classes where dropped off here, turning this normally quiet temple into a busy scene.
