Sangkhlaburi, West Thailand (7hr bus ride from Bangkok) - Day 3 of Group Tour

Me visiting Wat Wang Wiwekaram, which has a massive golden chedi (i.e. spire) that is visible from the guesthouse. It was erected in honour of the Abbott Pho Uttama, who represented the interests of the Mon people (displaced settlers from Burma) when a dam was constructed that flooded the Mon villages.
