Wat Khao Kradong in Buri Ram

Wat Phra Puttabat Khao Kradong or Wat Khao Kradong in Buri Ram is the temple of LP Tiang, a famous master there. He has recently been invited to Singapore to meet followers. The temple is located at the foot of the Kradong hill. Above we see the Khmer style temple gate with the 4 faces of Phra Prom.
A special statue of Tao Wessuwan in Deva form with 4 arms, holding club, scripture, conch shell and one hand pointing to the ground. Normally he is portrayed in fierce Yakkha form protecting the entrances of temples.
Inside LP Tiang's Kuti. As LP Tiang was not around, we got his disciple to give us a blessing for the items that we chowed.
The altar inside the Kuti had many Lersi and Kumanthong statues.
The white chedi outside.
The bell and drum tower.

A video I shot of the Ubosot and Chedi.
