You can see how the figure was built, and while the walking Buddha is the only clear one remaining you can see from the outlines which the others were (sitting, standing, reclining). Also interesting mortise and tenon cut slabs of rock wall.

This wat is one of the 13 wats that my tuktuk driver and I visited. It took us 5 minutes to visit it, just some columns and headless buddha. We left briefly to visit other wats of the Park.

This temple was different from the others, in that there was representation of each type of Buddha - standing, walking, sitting, reclining. Worth the trip to see it. Across from this temple, is also Wat Chedi Si Hong, which is fun too. I liked the...More
