Visit Wat Thung Si Muang (Ubon Ratchathani)

Home > To visit in Thailand > Ubon Ratchathani > Wat Thung Si Muang
Thai name : วัดทุ่งศรีเมือง
My opinion:
If you are looking for accommodation near Wat Thung Si Muang, you can see here a list of hotels near Wat Thung Si Muang
Built during the reign of King Rama III, the temple is especially interesting for its replica of a Buddha Footprint and its wooden Tripitaka library, called Ho Trai. It was built on stilts in the middle of a pond, a classic strategical position to protect the books and writings from rodents and crawling insects. It is open to the public and corridors inside are beautifully decorated with wooden paneling and gold leaves. There are also two wiharns, one on the left, quite old and one more recent on the rignt of the library that houses a larger sitting Buddha.
