Hilight :

This temple is famous for obtaining blessing and purifying the soul by way of taking a bath with the holy water.

What / Why :

Main entrance to Chedi Thaimongkhon which was made from all stainless steel tubing.

Concealed in ceramic vases or glass cases are dust remains of monks, placed at the lower center piller which is the main center piller that holds the entire circular stainless steel tubing of the 2 storey pagoda .

Interior on the 2nd floor, fascinating steel works
Elegant steel winding staircase.

Wishing bowl, but this is the monthly bowl. One need to point the arrow first to your month of birth and rotate the arrow . If the arrows returns to your bowl, it is said that your wish will be fulfilled.

This spot offers a spectacular sunset on a good day, apparently the day of my visit is not one ~ sigh.
A seven days Wishing bowl, one must know the day (not date) of birth to try your luck in tossing a coin into the bowl. I think the bowl is about 10 ft or 12 ft high. This is the center pillar on the upper floor.
The exterior walls with 16 numbers of circular doors( if I recalled correctly). The polka dots on the walls are actually laid with coins, while the interior of the lower ground is design to look like a cubicle with a space for meditation purposes .

Amazingly doorways, although the building is built in a circular , the doors are align from one end to the other, with the main structure pillar that should stood in the centre of the building is somewhat missing or rather invisible. Its an amazing architecture all together !
Three headed serpent with its body coiled around the temple grounds, a sign of guarding the temple.

The apex stainless steel structure making its way to the top of the stupa.
at 6pm sharp, Thai time, the pagoda begins to lit
A couple of minutes later, the pagoda fully lit, turning it from a Stainless Steel Pagoda by day into a Crystal Pagoda by nite. Magnificent ! however, my photo did not do justice compared to the real thing !


On top of the hill, stood the Golden Buddha.
Bodhisattva Kuan Yim.
Looks like the stairways to heaven.

The goddess temple is on the southern foothill of Hatyai and visible from a distance. It was said that the statue was carved from one piece of Jade and hauled to the top of the hill piece by piece is one of Thailand’s most sacred Buddha statue.
Bodhisattva Kuan Yim.
