  • On the plus side, this wat does look different from most Thai wats because it is shaped like a Chinese junk and it is covered in brown ceramic tiles. Overall, it has a 1960s modernist look, which is n...  more »

  • Wat Salaloi. Location: on the bank of Lam Takhong River, about 400m off the side – road of highway 224. GPS Coordinates (WGS84): N 14.980582, E 102.116713 The highlight of the “Temple of the Floating Pavilions” is a large wihaan designed in a contemporary Thai style with sharply slanting roofs and walls that are supposed to create the feel of a ship riding the waves. Adorning the outer walls, ceramic tiles from Dan Kwian display scenes from the life of the Buddha. In 1973 the Siam Architects Society awarded the wihaan as the best avant-garde religious building of the year. Inside the wihaan, a roughly five-metre-tall white standing Buddha image is depicted wearing a cape with two hands raised in the holding back the ocean posture. The surrounding walls narrow towards the back of the hall, forming a triangular frame around the Buddha. A small pond topped by pavilions and elevated footpaths helps Wat Sala Loi earn its name behind the wihaan. The grounds also feature a large concrete shrine room housing an image of Ya Mo placed high above the ground. The story behind the temple: The temple was built in 1827 by Thao Suranaree and her husband. The Heroine of Korat, after winning the battle. She floated a small offering along the Lamtaklong (Korat) river and made her wish that she would build the Bhuddist temple at the site where the floating vessel landed. That is why the name of this temple was given, meaning "Floating Sala" The relics of Thao Suranaree was also installed at this temple.
  • At " WAT SALA LOI " has a shrine that contain the bones ash of THAO SURANAREE ( YA MO ) , spacious area with a hugh manmade waterfall and shady water garden , not too far from "YAMO monument" ( KORAT ' s landmark )
