LP Hong of Wat Petburi
LP Hong is perhaps the most famous and powerful guru monk in Surin. His fame spreads to as far as Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, with thousands of devotees. A master of Khmer magical arts, his life is full of legendary stories, as written before in various amulet magazines. However at the very old age of 93, his health has been getting weaker and weaker. Above we see the Phra Prom Gate of the Promakun Sala.
