LP Khom of Wat Pai Rong Wa

LP Khom of Wat Pai Rong Wa was a famous guru monk in Suphanburi during the 80s. He was well versed in meditation and most remembered for building the large Buddhist theme park at Wat Pai Rong Wa, which remains a strong tourist attraction to this day. LP passed away in 2533 (1990) at the age of 88. Above we see his wax statue.
