Wat Bang Riang

Bang Riang, Thap Put, Muang, Phang Nga 82000, Thailand

Wat Bang Riang
Quite often people overlook the Wat that has the quite spectacular chedi on the hill further up from it.
I decided to stop, and take in the unusual and novel design of the Ubosot, set on a concrete boat, with a magnificent Naga head as the Bow.
The Chedi at the top of the hill is the main draw, but I enjoyed this bit and was glad I visited it first!
