Hidden Jewels In Wat Phupa Ratanawarararm

Ajahn Pak Dik Yu (Si Fu Wong Chin Leong) or Wong Sifu, the first abbot of Wat Phupa, was born on February 28th, 1934. In year 1995, at the aged 61 years he was ordained at Wat Mentua in Tumpat Kelantan. Wong Sifu spent his lifetime studying religious sciences and magic, learning from some of the foremost spiritual leaders in Kelantan. After Wong Sifu had passed away on June 7th, 2005, the renovation of the temple was not yet completed, but Ajahn Suwat Thanatomma as the new abbot he took it upon himself to complete the work.
