LP Yee of Wat Sattahip

LP Yee of Wat Sattahip (2408-2490BE) was the top guru monk of Chonburi province in the pre-WW2 era, most renowned for his Wicha knowledge and making powerful Palakits. He had a few prominent disciples, like LP Tee of Wat Huchang who is still alive today. Above we see the devotees outside the LP Yee Vihara.
