Wat Chang Lom, Thailand

Really enjoyed visiting Wat Chang Lom - it’s probably one of the most amazing temples in the old town of Si Satchanalai.  Surrounded by 39 elephant sculptures around its base, the well preserved bell-shaped chedi with Ceylonese influence is definitely a sight to behold.Upload from February 26, 2012

The viharn (monastery) on the left with the chedi on the right with elephant sculptures and Buddha images - can’t wait to see them up close. Here we go.

Elephant sculptures on either side of the steps that lead to the platform base where niches with Buddha images line its base. A maintenance crew was busy cleaning up some of the greenery growning on the chedi.

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
