Mural paintings at Wat Chum Saeng Si Wanaram

Mural paintings at Wat Chum Saeng Si Wanaram

location (ubosot with mural paintings):
13.36687, 101.2470 = 13°22'00.7"N 101°14'49.2"E
วัดชุมแสงศรีวนาราม (Wat Chum Saeng Si Wanaram): ทางหลวงชนบทหมายเลข 3014 ต.หมอนนาง อ.พนัสนิคม จ.ชลบุรี

This building with brown terracotta is worth a note as well:













Unsual mural paintings in ubosot (doors of ubosot were closed, but not locked, we had asked staff at the wat before where the mural paintings are and if we could see them):











Deciphered with help of a Thai friend: ชะยะวะฒะนะ 24.4.24 (Cha-Ya-Wa-Ta-Na 24.4.2524 BE = 1981 CE). Same artist as in Wat Phra That Doi Saket วัดพระธาตุดอยสะเก็ด อ. ดอยสะเก็ด จ.เชียงใหม่.

Pictures taken by a friend's drone to avoid distortion (but opening angle not wide enough for whole painting, or opposite wall to close to get away far enough to photograph whole painting):
