Bored in a hotel in China .... looking at some old pics ..... thought I would post this....

 

Had the occasion to venture out to a place in far eastern Roi Et province called Wat Phra Mahathat Chedi Chaimongkol. It's high up on a hill and famous in the area because some of Buddha's bones are held there. Decent day trip if you are in the area.... very beautiful place and peaceful. It's high up on a hill so a bit cooler on a hot day in Isaan and the views are pretty good.

 

Here is where the place is located ....

You park about 400 m below the wat and walk the rest of the way up the hill....

Be warned ... you have to dress appropriately for this one ....

 

 

 

The place is basically a huge walled garden w this structure in the middle .... Buddha's bones are in a shrine at the very top .... you have to climb up a big staircase to get there ....

This was a couple of years back now .... at the time there were only a few small shops and places to eat near the parking area, but it was nice. There was also a decent OTOP shop there .....

 

Hope you enjoyed.

 

If you are in the area, give it a look w your favorite (current) TG.....

 

Cheers....

Great pics again in this little tr.

I really enjoy visiting the Temples when I can tear myself away from Pattaya and travel a bit.

Glad you enjoyed....

 

This is a place I never would have found on my own. Nice to have a TG to go with on trips like this.... Makes for an enjoyable time.

 

And funny thing, my GF is like most I suspect, never been to many of the interesting spots .... Just too busy working to bother w such things. Now she's happy to go with me .... She's discovering Thailand along with me! Ironic....
