Wat Si Sumang Wanaram วัดศรีสุมังค์วนาราม Mukdahan Thailand

The Culture and Arts Center at khon kaen university surveyed this monastery. I am still unclear as to why they chose the temples that they have, but as promised I am resurveying as many of the 81 on their list as possible. Once again their survey seems to have ignored a number of items of interest at the site. The murals inside the chedi, which seem to show a Hindu influence and the boat which seems to have some significance are not seen or mentioned in their survey. I always find baskets and their names interesting. And the sofa added a real homey touch to the place. Anyhow once again are my photos of the site. click on the up arrow in the lower right hand corner to view the album full screen album up arrow to view full screen
