The giant Huay Mongkol Temple, probably the only statue that I have seen that is not a buddha..The statue actually depicts a monk that is held in very high regard and worshipped accordingly..
I visited when a local day of prayer was being performed and it was crowded but interesting to see the locals coming in and paying their respects..
Trees of gold leaves adorned the walks, and throngs of people praying and chanting over a microphone could be heard..
Pleasantly and additionally, something of a rare instance in Thailand, was free entrance..
