I went on a one day bus trip to Surin and Sisaket province with me the only Westerner. on the bus amongst my local villagers . This is Wat Phrai Phatthana the resting place of the mummified body of a revered monk. Haven't found out why they have Big Roosters. The beautiful shine is red stone and carved wood. The stone castle and adjoining wooden buildings are really worth the visit
But there is some very commercial fund raising going on, donate to spinning monks with offering bowls and stick a tiny piece of gold paper on now golden balls even the fat Buddha has a coin slot in his belly button or is it to clean the lint? The Thais love it as if it's a type of Buddha world theme park. Is it spiritual? Well not to some purists but to the Thais is seems to be. A day out and a merit-making exercise.
