Seeing The Shrines At Wat Nikrodharam

The main temple is impressive, all done up in regal paint, a big Buddha to stare down on you. For something more intimate and arguably more impressive, head around back to a small room crammed with icons. Many months after seeing the place, you may "wax" nostalgic.

The shrine, looking a little like the setup for a team picture.

The monks are are done in wax, so well executed, Madame Tussauds would be jealous. Reclining Buddha, practically a requirement for any legitimate temple.

Dalai Lama?

Give some props to the ladies. There's also a big case nearby, full of little religious trinkets to purchase. In the upper right corner, wood phallus icons. We've seen that theme before.

Last look at a wax buddhist monk, super impressive.
