  Wat Pra Bat Noi
by gib157

Wat Pra Bat Noi (Lesser Footprint hill)is another ruin just south of Wat Saphan Hin. Very overgrown and crumbling. I find something very fascinating about these hidden relicts. I saw no one else in these places and it made it feel a lot more beautiful to me. After coming from the crowded Wat Sri Chum a totally deserted hill top ruin from hundreds of years past is something special.

There was a temple I went to in Cambodia called Phnon Bakheng and there was also a footprint in the same position (facing east) as the one here. My guide told me it represents the foot of buddha taking a giant leap - supposedly the other footprint is miles further east somewhere?
