Wat Sri Lam วัดศรีเอี่ยม

Wat Sri Lam วัดศรีเอี่ยม was on a journey we were making somewhere and we stopped off.

It was a peaceful Wat to visit and it was extremely quiet.

There roofs were really quite lovely and I wish that I was able to get a photograph with all the small sparkles that are there at the particular afternoon that I was there. There was plenty of parking space which was extremely helpful.

Taking the steps upstairs was where I started

Inside was an ornate place to pay respect.

The ceilings are always a place to look at. And then on coming down I saw there was a pathway adjacent to the main building.

Following this to underneath the the Wat I found another place where you could visit and pay respect.

ศาลเจ้ามูลนิธิธรรมกตัญญู - Samut Prakan

We saw ศาลเจ้ามูลนิธิธรรมกตัญญู (เสียนหลอไต้เทียนกง / 暹罗代天宫) when were travelling to 
Samut Prakan.  

Then when I began to try to find about it this I was quite struck with how little there was (or it was in Thai and/or Chinese). Apart from Richard Barrow who has also visited there.

The entrance is really quite un-dramatic.

Then on entering into an enormous courtyard the area is very large and the amount of buildings is extensive and off to the right is quite a large garden.

So we started in the gardens - beautifully maintained.

Even the lizard liked them.

The corridors blended with the garden.

Back into the main building - the corridors were immaculate.

and the areas between were immaculate.

And the doorways were exquisite.

The walk ways between some of the buildings were quite stunning.

Then the displays were very intricate.

Even the roofs were worth looking at.

Whilst you are looking up then their are some quite wonderful ceilings. This was certainly a wonderful Chinese Shrine to visit - thank you.

Wat Somdet Kao (วัดสมเด็จเก่า)

Wat Somdet Kao (วัดสมเด็จเก่า) is another place we visited when we were in Kanchanaburi on the fishing boat.

Quite a steep walk up the hill from the edge of the water!

But on the top of the hill was an older building. 

With the Buddhist statue still in there and taken care of.

Wonderful finding all these places to visit

Wat Sommanat วัดโสมนัสวรวิหาร


Wat Sommanat วัดโสมนัสวรวิหาร was another temple I visited in the afternoon.

It was a maze of corridors around the central temple.

When I visited it was being renovated so I will have to go back another time.

See you again.
