Wat Khao Sukim

Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 4 0

This huge, pale orange wat is perched on the side of Sukim mountain. The temple, the home of Luang Pho Somchai, one of Thailand’s most popular meditation masters, is reached via a cable car or the naga-lined staircase. Inside are a number of tables inlaid with mother-of ]pearl, while exhibits housed in a museum include an ostentatious display of jewelry and a collection of Bencharong, Khmer, and Ban Chiang pottery. They show the surprising wealth that a rever ed monk can accumulate from donations by merit-makers.
