Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Pa Chai Rangsi
Wat Pa Chai Rangsi is a huge temple in Samut Sakhorn Province. On a donated 80 acres of land the abbot of Wat Burapharam from Surin Province had this temple built as a center of Buddhism and Meditation. Inside the huge Viharn is a statue of Phra Buddha Tosapol Yana Maha Karuna Sakhon. HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn presided over the gold casting of the image. When we visited in September of 2007 one building of the temple was dedicated to selling Jatukam images, while we were not able to "rent" images of the main Buddha statue of the temple.
