2.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
Stop by Wat Khunaram (Mummified Monk) to see the mummified body of Luang Pho Daeng, a prominent monk who died in 1973 while meditating. The monk's remains serve as an important reminder of the transience of human nature. One of the more unusual historical attractions available in the area, the temple draws foreign visitors interested in learning more about Buddhism. Instead of selling conventional souvenirs, the onsite shop takes a more holistic and spiritual approach, stocking goods such as holy water, coconut oil, and natural soaps.

  • Skated on a bike in the area, decided to take a look at a mummy monk. The mummy as the Mummy, nothing special. A lot of tourists, noisy.
