A panoramic view of part of Thomburi area. In the middle of the picture you can see the Wat Khun Chan, can you spot the Pagoda? This photo was taken from a building near to King River.
A close-up view of Wat Khun Chan
This picture was taken from the same point the above picture was taken. I used a nikon lens at 300mm.
On the left handside of Phasricharoen canal is the Big White Pagonda which belongs to Wat Pak Naam. On the right handside is located the Buddha Image turning his back to the canal. This picture was taken two years ago as we took a canal tour here in Bangkok.
Two Buddha's image: The biggest one is riding three Erawan elephant which is believed is a vehicle of Phra Indra or the Amarin God (a hindu God). And the second one is an small reclining Buddha -around 8 meter long- facing to the canal. This Buddha images lies in Wat Khun Chan.
Those are the main images of the Wat Khun Chan. Buddha is surrounded on the left, by the Amarin (Hindu God in green) and on the right by a Naka with seven heads.
In the picture, Rahu or Black Daemon is eating the moon. This is one of the earliest answer to how and why happens the lunar eclipse. Buddha is ridding three white elephants above him.
On our way to the temple, just coming into it a local guy approaching us told us that this Rahu image is the biggest one in Thailand.
My favorite model posing for my camera in front of the beautifully decorated reclining Buddha.
Beneath the reclining Buddha (see the above picture) there is a holy tunnel. It is believed that whoever walks through it, it will bring her/him the good luck.
