Wat Phra That Rueang Rong is another unusual temple. A previous abbot, lamenting the loss of the old ways, built the bòht to look like an oxcart being pulled by two giant bulls. He also created a museum housing old tools, musical instruments and the like from the province's four cultures: Lao, Khmer, Suai and Yer. Concrete statues of people and oversized animals around the grounds offer life lessons. The wát is 7km north of town; take sŏrng·tăa·ou 2 (10B, 20 minutes) from in front of the train station.
