Phra That Ruang Rong in Srisaket province

Phra That Ruang Rong in Srisaket province

พระธาตุเรืองรอง ศรีสะเกษ North of Srisaket, 8.8 km by road from bus station. I took mocy from bus station (150 Baht for return quoted, on return asked for 100 Baht more for waiting time, I spent about 16:15 to 17:00 there, mocy trip each way about 15 minutes).

Local buses/vans (I spotted line 814 Srisaket-Ratanaburi) drive past on hwy 2373, from hwy about 2.2 km walk.

Oversized animal statues, the horse serves as gate, you can walk underneath its belly. The sign says วัดบ้านสร้างเรือง Wat Ban Sang Ruang.

Inside the building:

A weird collection of everything:

Buddhist hell paintings on the wall:
