Wat Maha Samanakit Pawana, Sakon Nakhon 09.09.12

Wat Maha Samanakit Pawana is located along Route 22, The Udon Thani - Sakon Nakhon Road about 32 kilometers east of town. 30 some years ago the King and Queen visited the grounds and there is a museum here somewhere. The statuary is interesting , but there was no way to determine their age.
The old ubosot was locked and although I was there with a Thai everybody did their best to keep their distance. The towering edifice, like so many others in Temples in Thailand sits unfinished and rotting in the elements. If you are on the roar between Sakon Nakhon and Udon it is worth a stop, and is a cool and shady site along the way
