LP Thom of Wat Cherng Tha
Wat Cherng Tha is the temple of LP Thom, who used to be the top guru monk in Lopburi until he passed away some years ago. It is also famous for its Lopburi-Khmer style Nakprok Buddha statue.
The very old "Luang Por Nak" Buddha statue which is believed to grant the wishes of the faithful.
The front altar with various relics.
The temple counter. I chowed one of the smaller Luang Por Nak buchas made of sandstone. Unfortunately it was badly damaged when I brought it back to Singapore.
