Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Prachotikaram was one of those temples for us, which we did not plan to visit and then spent hours in the temple. We spent a lot of time taking with the abbot and the monks of the temple, learned about the temples' history and problems in modern times. The temple is frequently a victim to severe flooding from the nearby river and photos show how the river runs through the temple buildings. Two large standing Buddha statues are housed in two separate buildings, which stand in one line in front of an Ubosot and a small chedi.
