Visiting the Wat Sri Mongkol near Tha Wang Pha

Base of Chedi with Buddha images and Elephants

Yesterday we did visit the Wat Sri Mongkol (or Wat Khong) along route 1170 between Tha Wang Pha and Sila Phet in Nan province (North Thailand). Although I have been already many times at this temple we did visit it again with friends from the Netherlands. This temple has become a bit of a commercial tourist destination for Thai tourists because of the great view over the rice fields and mountains. But more there is also a small museum at the temple grounds and the temple has some nice new murals inside. Following are a few more photos.
