Wat Bang Riang Chedi

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

Wat Bang Riang is a Buddhist temple located in the southern province of Phang Nga in Thailand. The temple is known for its stunning chedi, which is a type of Buddhist stupa that is commonly found in Southeast Asia.

The chedi at Wat Bang Riang is one of the largest and most impressive in Thailand, standing at over 50 meters tall. The structure is made of white marble and features intricate carvings and gold leaf decorations. Visitors can climb to the top of the chedi for panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

In addition to the chedi, Wat Bang Riang is home to several other important religious structures, including a large statue of the Buddha and several smaller chedis. The temple is also surrounded by beautiful gardens and a small lake.

We got here after stopping at the bottom of the hill and looking around the Ubosot in my previous post.
