Wat Phayap

Buddhist Temple in Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat)

When the abbot of Wat Phayap learned that blasting for a quarry in Saraburi Province was destroying a beautiful cave, he rescued pieces of it and plastered the stalactites, stalagmites and other incredible rocks all over a room below his residence, creating a shrine like no other.

The walls and, very unusually, roof of the beautiful new bóht next to the cave shrine are made of polished granite.
