Wat Pa Nong Lup วัดป่าหนองหลุบ in Khon Kaen

Wat Pa Nong Lup วัดป่าหนองหลุบ in Khon Kaen

I saw a picture of this place on the internet while I was looking for something else and was intrigued, so I went during my last trip to Khon Kaen.


Location:
16°28'37.6"N 102°46'00.2"E 16.477105, 102.766734
8.4 km north-west of Khon Kaen railway station. 3.9 km by road north of intersection of hwy 12 = Maliwan road มะลิวัลย์ with hwy 230 = Khon Kaen ring road. Songtheo line 5 (to Baan Tum บ้านทุ่ม) passes the intersection in east-west direction, walk from there. About 800 m west of hwy 230, nearest kilometer marker is km 12 of hwy 230 (33 km to Nam Pong น้ำพอง, 89 km to Kalasin กาฬสินทธุ์). Visible from highway. http://www.wadpanonglub.com/th/

I was wondering if the brown color is from tiles, from near you can see it's from laterite stone:








These buildings are actually the first you pass when coming from highway, modeled after a temple in India (which?):
