Wat Thung Si Muang : Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand

Wat Thung Si Muang was constructed during the reign of King Rama III (1824-1851) to houses a replica of Buddha’s footprint.

Aside from that, the most beautiful structure in the temple is perhaps the wooden Tripitaka Library (Ho Trai) that was designed to sit on the stilts in the middle of the pool to prevent the materials from insects (ants and termites).

The architecture here is a mixture of Laos and rattankosin styles (Rattanakosin refers to the era after 1782, when Bangkok was the capital of Thailand). Next to the Tripitaka Library is the Ho Phra Budha Bot and the Viharn (ordination hall).
