Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham

Recommendation by Lemi

The sacred beauty of Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham has saved the temple from the ravages of time and foreign invasion. Marvel at gilded reliefs that render rural life, the Ramayana (an ancient Indian epic), and Buddha’s birth in glorious detail! The ornate carvings continue on inside, surrounding a golden Buddha as he sits in meditation. In addition, an Emerald Buddha looks out from its shrine onto Wat Mai’s visitors.
