I wanted to come here as it is not every day that you get to see a real mummified monk! The monk, Loung Pordaeng, was wearing sunglasses and he was placed in a grand-looking glass box. Visitors can snap photos and also pay homage to him. What's interesting is that there is a row of sunglasses placed behind the monk in the glass box.
Just got some interesting info on the sunglasses from this website: http://www.thailandselection.com/attraction/The-Mummified-Monk.html
It is written there that "When his eyes fell into his head, the monks at the temple fitted him with some sunglasses." Now that answers my question on why the sunglasses!
We did not pay a fee to look or take photographs of the monk.
Tourists can walk around the temple but they have to adhere to the dressing code.
