Pa Kham Chanot - Thailand Painting Holidays

This is a strange magic beautiful place. The Wat is on an island surrounded by lakes, swamps and rice fields. The island is crowded with magnificent trees. I don't fully understand this place but Waree tells me it is inhabited by spirits and in fact because when she was pregnant she wouldn't go to the place in case they got into the baby.

This beautiful temple is a place you should visit while you are staying with us. The murals and statues are magnificent. The Wat is very significant to Thai people who believe it can be a powerful influence on their lives.
