Wat Manee Si Mahathat (near Phang Nga)




This was a wonderful surprise - as we were driving along the road I was surprised by the appearance of an enormous Buddha made out of black rock. Walking up to this Buddha was exhilarating because it was so peaceful when you were at the top - now if there was a sunset?





Wat Manee Si Mahathat was obviously taken care of an the quality and cleanliness of the building was immaculate - but I saw nobody on the site. I thought that the Wat had recently been painted?




The dragons which are in front of the main Wat were very animate.




There is also apparently a museum on the site but I was unable to see where it was.
