Wat Phai Rong Wua, SuphanburiWat Phai Rong Wua is home of the largest metal cast buddha image in the world. More interesting to me is that it also has a depiction of hell, or at least the things that may happen down there. There are statues showing all sorts of nasty things, as well as descriptions of why these people ended up in hell. Murder, theft, telling lies, promiscuity, drinking too much, bribing police officers, ... Some of the depictions are pretty gruesome. Check out the pics in my gallery. Unfortunately my camera battery went flat after just 20 minutes at the Wat. This place is well worth a visit from Bangkok. Its about 1 hour drive from Pathumthani. I also visited Wat Thap Kradan, which houses a lot of memorobilia for a Thai pop singer. I didn't really work out the significance of this, but it was ok to visit.
