Sunday 24 December: Wat Samphran Temple, the Dragon Tower|
Only day two and we just visited the most mind blowing kitsch surreal place and it is going to be hard to top up. Crazy as it it's not in any guide books, been falling to disrepair for the past 20 years, since the creator/monk ended in prison. Ran by lots of sisters, we loved it so much...we climb to the top of a giant pink tower from inside the gut of a 7 storey dragon. We entered a giant turtle temple by her mouth and came out via her tail, there was giant rabbit, dead guy, giant bronze Buddha’s, bridge made of dolphins, tigers, paths made of feet and the most stunning spacey temple with hundreds of buddhas...that temple I think was my favorite of them all, the colours and décors.
The gardens were lovely with stuff everywhere and just weird
