Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Khun Chan
We stumbled over Wat Khun Chan when walking through a local area on the way to re-visit Wat Pak Nam. We did initially think that the large Buddha image is part of Wat Pak Nam, but then discovered that the temple on the east side of the canal is Wat Khun Chan. The colorful Ubosot is very beautiful but has been locked on every visit we paid to the temple. The official name of the temple is Wat Waramathayaphanthasraram. Local people are very involved here with the temple's festivals and pay respect to the Buddha image in the Viharas behind the Ubosot.
