Wat Pijit Sangkharam วัดพิจิตรสังฆาราม Buddhism in Thailand

Wat Pijit Sangkharam วัดพิจิตรสังฆาราม has been surveyed by "The Culture and Art Center" at Khon Kaen University. It is located in Non Yang, Nong Sung, Mukdahan and in a way is rather unremarkable and like many in this part of thailand. The old wooden sala in daily use is part of the history of the region and well maintained. The high double roof has some interesting artwork, so remember to look up there if you stop to visit. The strings and paper artwork are old style isaan and add to the general feeling while looking around the old sala. The dhamma chair is another old one and worth a view of the detail.
This is another site that adds a worthwhile stop along the roads of isaan and it along with many others can be found in my Maps Blog. There is a lot to stop and visit along the way in Isaan sadly little of it is signposted in Thai let alone in English.
