This temple is located on Pho Si Road in Tambon Mak Khaeng. It was built in the late reign of King Rama V. Maha Ammat Tri Phraya Sisuriyaratchawaranuwat (Phothi Netiphothi), Lord Lieutenant of the Udon Circle persuaded the villagers of Mak Khaeng to build the temple, which was commonly called “Wat Mai.”

Later, Phra Chao Worawongthoe Krommaluang Chinnawonsiriwat, the Supreme Patriarch, Wat Ratchabophitsathitmahasimaram, named the temple as “Wat Phothisomphon,” to commemorate Phraya Sisuriyaratchawaranuwat, the temple builder.

Inside, there is also a museum of revered monks famous for meditation.

Wat Pa Phu Kon

The head monk at Wat Pa Phu Kon announced that the popular temple would reopen tomorrow on June 3rd, 2020. He mentioned that masks must be worn and social distancing rules should be observed. Temperature checks will be taken before admission and only 15 people will be allowed to worship at any one time.

The Wat Pa Phu Kon temple complex was built between 2010 and 2013. The construction cost 320 million Thai baht, with the funds used for construction being donated by a Thai donor in honor of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The complex is centered around the Great Wihan, the largest component of the temple. In addition, a number of smaller buildings are located around the complex. One of the most notable features of the temple is a 65-foot long statue of a reclining Buddha. Said statue was built with white marble blocks imported from Italy and then sculpted in Thailand. The temple also features a 25-meter high golden stupa.

How to get there:

The best way is to travel along Highway No. 1 (Phaholyothin Road) to Saraburi on Highway 2 (Mittraphap Road) via Nakhon Ratchasima. Turn left to Ban Phu and Na Yung until you reach Ban Na Kham Yai. You will have to turn to Wat Pa Phu Kon. The total distance is about 657 kilometers and takes approximately 10 hours.

You could hire a taxi or rent a car from Udon Thani. The distance from downtown Udon Thani to Wat Phu Kon is 125 kilometers and takes about 1 hour 45 minutes.
