Back in year BE2556, with the perceived rise of terrorism issues in the news, many people are wondering if Southern Thailand is still a safe destination to travel to? The answer is yes and no. The unfortunate reality is less people come to this area included Wat Natawee. Wat Natawee is located at Songkhla and is near with border of Pattani. Here we share the old photos of Wat Natawee and near future will update with new photos of this temple.

 Photo taken with LP Phat Ariyo (Ajahn Phat). He born in year BE2509 in Phatthalung province and got ordained as a novice when he was 13 years old at Wat Pring. Until he was 20 years old, he got ordained as monk at the same temple. At the time, he wanted to practice meditation intensively. After some years, he became as abbot of Wat Natawee in year BE2536. LP Phat Ariyo can tell the future because he has strong mind power. His ability to tell the future is known by many people and people call him “Phra Sam Ta” (a monk who has three eyes). That means a monk who has the third eye for seeing the future.

Wat PhraLoy ~ The Temple Beside Tha Chin River - Suphanburi - Thailand.

Wat Phra Loy, the ancient temple is located near Tha Chin River in Suphanburi Province. Archeologists assume that this temple was built in the reign of King U-Thong (BE1314–1369). People believe the name “Wat Phra Loy” comes from the event that the Buddha statue flowed along Tha Chin River and stopped at this temple.
Wat Phra Loi was built to house a Buddha image that had been found washed along the Tha Chin River. The white sandstone Buddha image is depicted seated under a Naga (mythic sea serpent) hood, presumably carved during the Lop Buri period. In the temple compound, visitors can also see the ruins of the main Ubosot (ordination hall) built in the U-Thong period. A new Ubosot has been built over the ruins to preserve it.  Nearby, another elegant Ubosot with four entrances houses the beautiful principal Buddha image called Phra Phutthanawaratmongkhon, as well as ancient sandstone Buddha images in various postures. After paying respect to the Buddha images, visitors can feed the thousands of fish that live in the sanctuary in front of the temple. Wat Phra Loi is located by the Tha Chin River, not far from Wat Kae.
