Also called Wat Mon, this temple is the spiritual center of Mon in Thailand. Wat Wang Wiwekaram was built around its former head monk, Luang Phaw Uttama, who passed away in 1983 and is still widely revered throughout Thailand. It has never been cremated and his remains are in a coffin in a large shrine in the main building of the temple. Another building houses a large marble Buddha image. Located on a hill, teh temple regularly welcomes young students from the nearby school to introduce them to Buddhism.
