    Bobcock at Wat Chanasongkram Rajaworamahavihara

    These are some pics from a trip to Wat Chanasongkram Rajaworamahavihara which is the temple at the west end of Khaosan Road.

    It always holds a special memory for me as it was the first temple I visited and the first buddah image i ever saw in person back in February 1987. I still happen to think it is one of the nicest buddah images there is, possibly second to the Jinaraj buddah in Pitsanulok for me.

    I don't think it's a particularly famous temple and i don't know a great deal about it, but i do like it.

    Some of the pics show that they were replacing the chao fah's on the temple, pic 9 shows the new ones, being blessed ready for the job and pic 10 shows the old ones which had just been taken down.

    I remember taking some really good pics like that in Chiang mai.

    Very big temple with wooden ubosot on the west side of the city. Lots of white prangs behind the ubosot where the remains of one of the former King's wife were.

    I think I've seen some photos of it from you.
