Wat Pa Phu Kon, located in the Na Yung-Nam Som National Forest Reserve in Nam Som District, Udon Thani, northeastern Thailand, is a true oasis of peace. This temple was designed for monks to practice meditation and improve their mental development.
Inside the temple you will find a white marble Buddha lying on its side, twenty metres long.
Wat Pa Phu Phu Kon was built between 2010 and 2013. The construction cost around 320 million Thai baht, and the funds used for the construction were donated by a Thai donor in honour of the revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
