Wat Pa Sutthawat information
The grounds of Wat Pa Sutthawat, on the southwestern outskirts of town, is essentially a shrine to one of Thailand's best-known monks, Ajahn Man Bhuridatto, who helped found the temple but didn't live here until just before his death in 1949. The final resting place of his personal effects, the Ajahn Man Museum (6am to 7pm), looks a bit like a modern Christian church, with arches and etched-glass windows. A bronze image of Ajahn Man sits on a pedestal at the back and relics that remained after his cremation are in a glass box in front. Signs are in English.
Ajahn Lui Chanthasaro, who died in 1989, was one of Ajahn Man's most famous students, and King Rama IX designed the chedi that holds the Ajahn Lui Museum . Ajahn Lui is represented in wax.
