    Can anyone help?

    Mrs. Boozer was watching UBC yesterday (Friday) about a wat in Si Sa Ket (she thought) that featured the corpse of a dead monk, whose name she has written as 'Luang Phu Suang'. But being a typical Thai failed to take note of the name of the temple, can anyone please help to name this temple? Mrs. Boozer did also mention that the hair of the dead monk appears to still grow!

    I have spent a fair amount of time 'Googling' to no avail, so over to you!

    This one still has growing hair
    Maybe there are hundreds of them

    If you visit the temple in Wat Chong Kae, you will be able to see Luang Por Prom's body being house in a glass coffin. The condition of his body remains well as there are no sign of decaying. Looking at the finger nails or his hair, you can see that the hairs are still growing as if LP Prom is just sleeping and not passed away. It was said by some people that this is the level of Arahang where the dead body will never decay forever.

    Respectfully, how often do they have to shave his head to keep up his appearance since his hair is still growing? We don't want any Jesus looking monks out there under glass.

    Thanks folks, Mrs. Boozer informs me that it was definitely not the monk on Koh Samui, does not think it was the one at Sakhon Nakhon, so Ubon is looking favourite. Any further leads much appreciated!
