Thai Monstry

One of the oldest foreign monasteries built in the ornamental regal Thai architectural style. The grandeur of the exterior as well as the interior is utterly awe-inspiring. The temple reflects like a red and golden gem over a calm pool at the front patio. The splendid Buddha idol along with the mural paintings depicting Buddha’s life and some modern events like importance of planting trees painted in a stylized manner are utterly marvellous. The minimal aesthetics sense of the eating quarter for the monks at the side of the main temple built with bamboo and net structure is truly admirable. ...... Explore More
