The Modern World In Paint At Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon

Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon is a forward thinking place. Sure, Buddha images and the usual gold-tinged architectural style dominates. Up on one of the top floors of the main pagoda is a set of wall paintings that depicts the contributions of the monastery. They've been busy.

Helping cute school kids and receiving fancy awards.

How to get around to the flock? By plane!


More award ceremonies and how not to get on a train. Do not think you can keep a monk from a train.

Multi-paned narration of building the main pagoda. Looking a bit like the pyramids or a medieval cathedral. The pagoda was completed in 1984.
