Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo, Thailand

Wat Chang Lom is Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo Si Satchanalai (meaning temple with seven rows of chedis) which dates back to the 15th century and was constructed to hold the remains of the ruling families. The main chedi is topped with a lotus bud which is distinctively Sukothai in style. A smaller chedi in front has a niche with a meditating Buddha image atop a coiled naga (great snake).

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!
