Wat Hua Khuang

Wat Hua Khuang

Wat Hua Khuang is another small and quiet temple in the city of Phrae. As we visited a few days before H.M. The King's 80th Birthday in 2007 the Abbot and other monks were just putting up a large picture of the King in front of the temple's main entrance. The abbot stopped his work and kindly opened the doors for us and switched on the lights. He told us that normally every temple in Thailand is putting up a portrait of the King for the birthday celebrations. There are several Buddha images inside the otherwise undecorated building of the temple, which functions as Ubosot and Viharn in one,  and a large brick Chedi behind it, which is of Chiang Saen-style and had been built in B.E. 1443, which makes it 1108 years old (in A.D. 2008).
