Wat Sala Thong

Wat Sala Thong is in Tambon Hua Thale, about 1 kilometre southeast of the city.  This is temple of the Dhamayuti sect.  The area around the temple was originally a dense forest where a large sitting stone Buddha image in the Pa Lelai posture was located out in the open.  A convocation hall was later built to cover it.  The temple has a large pagoda that was built over a smaller one that encased the holy relics of Lord Buddha that were taken from Myanmar’s Chiang Tung.
