Description

One of the most unique Thai temples is Wat Phra Thong. At the center of the temple, the story behind the 'half portrait' is a little mysterious. A boy was out watering a buffalo, according to lore, and tied it to some metal protruding from the ground.Both the boy and the buffalo died, but the boy, in a dream, appeared to his father and told him to look into the piece. The father noticed the tip of a golden Buddha when he dug around the site. Both efforts over the intervening years to excavate it failed. When residents tried to dig it out, there are stories of hornet attacks.
