Presentation Wat Metta Tham Photiyan

Thai name : วิหารพระโพธิสัตว์กวนอิม ปางพันเนตรพันกร
My opinion:
Thanks to its impressive 12-meter-high Guan Yin Bodhisattva statues carved in teak wood, this fairly recent temple quickly became the most famous Chinese temple in Kanchanaburi province. The covered courtyard which welcomes you does not suggest what you are going to discover inside: a hall with all the partitions and ceilings also in carved teak wood and in the middle of which enthroned, back to back, are the 4 statues of the chinse goddess with 18 arms. In the peripheral corridors, dozens of all different statues are also made of carved wood. Wat Mettatham Photiyan is set to expand to accommodate even more statues. Dozens are already stored to the right of the main hall and are awaiting finalization. Located 23 kilometers by road from Kanchanaburi city, it is a few kilometers from another interesting temple, Wat Tham Pu Wa and its pretty cave.
