Wat Phra That Saeng Kaeo Mongkon

Wat Phra That Saeng Kaeo Mongkon

On a small rural road through the rice fields of central Phayao we found Wat Phra That Saeng Kaeo Mongkon. It sits on a huge compound and is a quiet meditation temple.  Many of the Chedis and buildings of the temple are replicas of their originals in India. The friendly abbot of the temple "assigned" two novices to walk around the temple and show us many of the buildings and statues. A statue of Phra Chao Ashok Maharaj is also located at the temple. A very peaceful place set in some of the most beautiful landscape.
