Wat Khunaram

Buddhist Temple in Hat Lamai & the Southeast

South of Rte 4169 between Th Ban Thurian and Th Ban Hua, Wat Khunaram contains the mummified remains of a pious monk. The temple abbot, Luang Phaw Daeng, has been dead for over four decades but his corpse is preserved sitting in a meditative pose and sporting a pair of sunglasses. The monk foresaw his own death in 1973, when he had reached the age of 79.
