Wat Supatanaram information
Called Wat Supat for short, the unique bòht at this riverside temple, built between 1920 and 1936, features a Thai roof, European arches, a Khmer base and also some Chinese design elements. And, in contrast to other temple structures of the region, it's made entirely of stone. In front is a wooden bell that the monks say is the largest in Thailand, though we're certain we've seen bigger.
