Introducing Sakon Nakhon Province

Many famous forest temples sit deep in the Phu Phan mountain range that runs across Sakon Nakhon Province, and among Sakon Nakhon's famous sons are several of the most highly revered monks in Thai history, including Luang Pu (Ajahn) Man Bhuridatto, who was born in Ubon Ratchathani but died here, and his student, Luang Pu (Ajahn) Fan Ajaro. Both were ascetic tú·dong monks who attained high levels of proficiency in vipassana meditation and are widely recognised among Thais as having been arahants (fully enlightened beings).
