"Young monks" Wats, Mosques & Temples Tip by anoum

Wats, Mosques & Temples, Hat Yai: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Young but serious
by anoum

Up to date, I have only seen Theravadic monks in orange robes and Mahayanist monks in grey/blue Chinese robes or suits (shaolin-looking type).

But in Hadyai, I came across young novices in orange coloured Chinese suits. Intriguing!

This particular temple is on the left of Tesco Lotus except you won't see it if you walk from Tesco. That's because there is another temple in front, which blocks this temple from view.

You will need to walk past that older temple, round the corner before coming upon this temple which has a small entrance.

At its entrance are row upon row of statues which house the ashes of the dead within.

Actually I took a photo of them but somehow it never appeared when I downloaded all the photos onto my computer. Mystery!
