Better known as Suan Mok, the temple is on Highway No. 41 some 50 kms. north of the provincial capital. Suan Mok’s founder, Bhikkhu Buddhadhasa, is highly respected in Thailand, and internationally, and his ‘back-to-basics’ approach attracts Buddhist monks and lay meditators from many countries. A favourite sight for casual visitors is the ‘Spiritual Theatre’ which Buddhadhasa describes as a pictorial interpretation of Dharma. The building features an eclectic mixture of Thai, Egyptian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Tibetan and European-style murals and sculptures.
