exterior Wat Tha Khok, Chiang Khan #Buddhist

exterior Wat Tha Khok, Chiang Khan

Built in 1852, the narrow stairs were designed by Vietnamese craftspeople while the inner floor features French-colonial style patterned tiles. The entire building is surrounded by a series of bells and gongs that can be rung for good luck.

The temple sports an unconventional Thai Theravada look with its high gabled roof and collection of Thai Buddha images inside. The heavy use of white and blue, including a gorgeous blue-and-saffron design on the inner roof, makes the temple artistically distinct.
