Viharn Phra Mongkol Bopitr

Viharn Phra Mongkol Bopitr Review

When this temple's roof collapsed in 1767, one of Thailand's biggest and most revered bronze Buddha images was revealed. It lay here uncovered for almost 200 years before a huge modern viharn was built in 1951. Historians have dated the image back to 1538.
