Amphoe Mueang, Chumphon
This old Buddhist temple is particularly important to the people of Chumphon, who revere a monk named Luang Pu Song. This venerable monk is believed to be so holy that his body did not decay after his death. The Wat (or temple) contains a large Sala tree with orange flowers and a strangely shaped trunk that is considered holy because the Lord Buddha is believed to have been born under a Sala tree.
Located on Chumphon Ao Thung Wua Laen route, visitors can reach this temple by turning left for 6 kilometers before reaching Chumphon Irrigation Office.
The temple is open to visitors daily from 8.00 am-5.00 pm.
