11:30 1/09/2012 Clouds concealing the mighty sun, cold wind blows, just a perfect weather exploring Songkhla, Southern province in Thailand. It’s our second day in Hatyai-Songkhla Trip last year when our driver/tour guide brought us to the places least we expect to visit. One of them is the Wat Phranon Laem Pho in Ko Yo Mueang Songkhla Thailand. We don’t have any idea why we had detour on our way to Songkhla. We caught by a surprise when a massive golden reclining buddha welcomed us.
In Buddhism it depicts Gautama Buddha attaining final nirvana or “perfect stillness”. It also symbolizes liberation, eternal bliss, rebirth and calm joy.
Aside from the reclining, a sitting and standing buddhas were also present in this temple. There comes in different form and sizes. A Golden Stupas and Shrines are also near these Buddhist statues. We saw locals citing some prayers on these colorful shrines.
