Wat Pho Chai Ban Nong Hang, วัดโพธิ์ชัยบ้านหนองห้าง, Kalasin

Wat Pho Chai Ban Nong Hang in Amphor Kuchinarai in Kalasin Province is yet another temple surveyed by the "Culture and Art Center" at Khon Kaen University. As far as I can determine from a document I found in the Fine Arts Departmet the sim was built in 2404B.E. or about 150 years ago. I believe the sim was rehabilitated relatively recently.
In a separate sala was a "dhamma chair" that was said to be more than 200 years old. These were used years ago by some of the Buddhist sects in Isaan. Also in the new sim I noticed a wooden object that no one could explain to me.
