Ubosot, Wat Phra Maha Sri Pho, mukdahan
As I was researching the Thai Bank of the Mekong River between Nong Khai and Mukdahan. Located not to far from Mukdahan town the temple houses some diverse architecture. A modern chedi or that, a, what I have seen described as a Sino Portuguese building and this very old ubosot. I do not know if the bot is "listed" with the fine arts departmnet or whoever, but it certainly should be as it is in better condition and houses better murals than some I have seen that are listed. There are a couple in Khon Kaen that are listed with the "Tourism Authority of Thailand" and elsewhere, but I am finding these old bots throughout the region.
