Wat Mahathat Worawihan

Interesting
A fusion of Thai and Khmer styles, as is the case with many of the temples in the pretty town of Phetchaburi, Wat Mahathat Worawihan dates in all probability from the 14C. In total, it boasts five finely sculpted prang, the tallest of which, the white prang, measures 40m in height. In the Luang wihan, embellished with attractive wall paintings, note the wheel of law, a symbol of Buddhist doctrine.
