Visit to Wat Panom Yong

Wat Panom Yong in Ayuttaya is the temple of LP Jamlong, the famous wicha master. He is not the same as LP Chamlong of Wat Chedi Daeng, as some might get confused. Above is the temple gate.
The yet to be completed Phra Rahu Shrine.
A cute pony beside the shrine. It is quite tame.
A big poster indicating the number of masters who will come to consecrate the Rahu shrine.
The Chuchok shrine. LP Jamlong is an expert in the Chuchok spell.
The temple counter.
The Ubosot.

May I ask, what is a Chuchok and why do Buddhist monks worship him?

Wayne Woo said...

Chuchok is a "beggar king" deity that originated from the Vessantara Jataka. U can refer to
http://waynedhamma.blogspot.com/2007/04/legend-of-wetsandon-chuchok.html for the legend. Monks don't worship him per se; worldly deities are more for lay people to worship instead.
