Wat Phra That Suthon Mongkhon Khiri

The legend of Wat Phra That Suthon Mongkhon Khiri is relatively strange as well as amazing. Those who have seen Wat Phra That Suthon Mongkhon Khiri at Den Chai District of Phrae and were told that the abbot, named Luang Pho Montri, or as local call him Kru Ba Noi, is only around 30 years old, would say that it is unbelievable. The abbot was a son of rice farmers in the district who raised cattle for living. He dropped off school at 7th grade because he wanted to be ordained. In 1978, when he was 18 years old, he started to build the temple and spent 17 years afterwards finishing the construction. The temple has become one of the most beautiful temples of the Northern region. People visiting the temple are amazed by its magnificent beauty that they say it is unparalleled to other places. In 1998, Luknimit embedding ceremony of Wat Phra That Suthon Mongkhon Khiri was presided by the Crown Prince and made people of Den Chai District and Phrae Province deeply delighted.

This is also the home to my favourite statue.
