This Buddhist temple is located in the district of Saraphi, which is just outside Chiang Mai city. This temple is part of the Wat Doi Saket project and a location where volunteers can teach conversational English to novice monks. There are only ten monks and novices that reside here. The school has approximately one hundred and sixty novice monks and they commute daily from local temples in the area.
In the main temple there is a giant Buddha statue. The Buddha is in the reclining position with his right hand at his side which is the position the Buddha died in and entered nirvana.
These pictures are from Katherine, our on site intern, who just finished teaching at this Wat.
