If you would like to help and Support Our Channel....https://www.paypal.me/ThailandUnplugged Hidden Temple with ORIGINAL BUDDHA’S ASHES Phra Angkhan Buri Ram, Isaan, Thailand BRIEF HISTORY Built atop an extinct volcano Some of Buddha’s ashes are enshrined here about seven years after his death in 543 BC. Khao Loy is an extinct volcano, about 12 km west of Phanom Rung. It was formed as a result of a volcanic eruption 700,000 years ago and the overflow from that eruption resulted in this mountain with its unique shape. It was then decided that this would be one of the places to enshrine some of Buddha’s ashes As a result of this feature of the Mountain the monk carrying Buddha’s ashes decided to enshrine the ashes on this mountain. And the original name of Khao Loy was changed to Khao Phra Angkhan BUDDHA’S ASHES The central attraction in Wat Khao Phra Angkhan is the ubosot or ordination hall (Main Building) in deep red stone with three chedi where Buddha’s ashes are enshrined. This temple is not like any I have seen in Thailand. It’s not Chinese, Thai or Khmer. It’s more like a cultural blend of designs from the different eras.
