Wat Ladthiwanaram (วัดลัฎฐิวนาราม)

This is a Buddhist Temple which we normally drive past on the way somewhere but we do not usually stop at. 

But one day we did did and what separated this Wat from many others was the small lake between the temple and the main road. 

I have been told that the original was built in 1758 but was moved to the site of Wat Chalong leaving the original site empty and used as a graveyard until 1903 when the temple was renovated and we have something quite special now (thanks Dawn).

I entered into the Wat, removing my shoes, and paid my respects - which I always feel we should do.
