Presentation Cherntawan Meditation Center

Thai name : ปริศนาธรรมในไร่เชิญตะวัน
My opinion:
This meditation center is named after one of Thailand's most famous Buddhist monks. Vast, pretty, installed on the edge of a small lake, it is a beautiful place worth visiting. Its main hall in teak wood is superb, the garden with its statues including 4 big monks, one covering his ears, another covering his eyes, another covering his mouth and the other revealing his heart, 4 very well known and widespread representations in Thailand (but here they have much larger dimensions), is really nice. Everything exudes serenity here even the two small coffe shops installed in the complex.

If it's a meditation center, many people just come to visit the place, go on the lake, feed the fish or have a coffee in a nice and peaceful setting.
