Wat Thung Si Muang from Ubon Ratchathani วัดทุ่งศรีเมือง

Wat Thung Si Muang from Ubon Ratchathani วัดทุ่งศรีเมือง
Wat Thung Si Muang was constructed during the reign of Rama III (1824-1851) to house a replica of the Buddha's footprint. Perhaps its most beautiful feature is the wooden tripitaka library (Ho Trai) that sits on stilts in a pond. It was designed in such a way to prevent insects (ants and termites) from reaching the palm scroll materials inside. The architecture is a mixture of Lao and Rattanakosin styles (Rattanakosin refers to the era after 1782, when Bangkok was the capital of Thailand).
Alongside the tripitaka library is the Ho Phra Buddha Bot. Adjacent to that is the Viharn (secondary chapel).

In Ubon Rachathani war ich auch vor Jahren. Meine Schwägerin stammt aus der Gegend. Es sind wunderschöne Erinnerungen, die ich mit der Reise verbinde.
