Phutthakhaya Chedi เจดีย์พุทธคยา in Sangkhlaburi

Phutthakhaya Chedi เจดีย์พุทธคยา in Sangkhlaburi

Location:
15°07'40.0"N 98°27'01.7"E 15.127767, 98.450484
2.1 km by road from the northern end of Mon Bridge, 
800 m south-east of Wat Wang Wiwekaram





Geometrical shapes and Buddha statues cover the chedi (in scaffolding during my visit for painting?):


Perimeter of the chedi still under construction:


Nearby is a bell tower which gives a view from a higher level:



Pictures were taken around midday. The main entrance (two lions) is north, that means you never have the sun at the entrance. Position of the sun and shadows is a major problem during all my trips. I rarely get up before 9, thus I have the sun in the south or west. Covered days in rainy season allow for pictures without shadows.
