A temple on a island at Han Kumphawapi Lake

Han Kumphawapi Lake - Udon Thani Thailand

In the not so early morning we did visit "Han Kumphawapi Lake", about 20km south of Udon Thani city. This lake is famous for the red lotus flowers that blossom from Dec-Feb each year. So it is also called "Red Lotus Sea" or  in Thai "Talay Bua Deang". You can take a small boat to go over the lake to enjoy a sunrise over the beautiful red flowers. I have visited this lake more as a few times and did make some postings about is last year. So I will not bother you with that again. But there is also a small island in the lake ... where of course is a temple. As I had never visited this island it was a good day to do that. Following are some more photos.
