Wat Tham Klong Phen, Nong Bua Lam Phu, Ajahn Analayo, Isaan

It Is believed that the Khmer worshiped here when their dynasty ruled here and it was left until 1958 when Luang Poo Khao Analayo (1888-1983), a student of Ajaan Mun, came to meditate and live here until his death in 1983 .This a large Wat with many areas to wander through. It is certainly worth a couple hours to view the grounds, chedi and museum. It is easily accessible from either Udon or Nong Bua Lam Phu. There is a large statue and sign that marks the side road to gain access to the Wat and it's location marked in this post and the Nong Bua Lam Phu map
