The stunning Wat Prathat Phasornkaew temple, perched on top of a mountain at 830m tall, visible from all the other vantage points around. Located in the remote Khao Kho region of Phetchabun, North Thailand also known as Little Switzerland for its cool climate.
The location was chosen for its natural beauty and serenity, a good spot for a monastery and encourage meditation. Built in 2004, it was not officially a Buddist temple until 2010 when they fulfilled the criteria of having 4 live in monks. and have a clear ownership status. The land and temple were bought privately and donated by the owner as a form of great merit.
The design of this temple is quite modern, with five stunning white buddhas dominating the landscape. Each Buddha represents each of the Buddhas from different incarnations, each 2500 years long. The walls and floors of the temple are decorated with shards of Thai crockery laid down in a decorative mosaic creating quite a stunning Gaudi like effect. Most of the mosaic pieces were donated by Thai people as they believe that this will give them merit in the after life.
