Phra That Din Thaen in Loei


Phra That Din Thaen
Loei
This is without doubt the most unique temple in Thailand - the 200-year-old temple was crafted entirely from soil; brick, concrete nor timber feature in its construction. The temple is highly regarded locally and receives visits from people from many districts in the province and beyond. Its history is somewhat shrouded but a local legend suggests a wandering monk asked villagers to construct Phra That Din Thaen and upon its completion asked them to adhere to the Buddha's 5 moral precepts. He also asked that the villagers should not kill animals on Buddhist Holy Days - a custom that continues in to this day. The temple is also site of a major festival in November. Pilgrimages are made to site after which is night-long entertainment.

Details:
There is no admission fee to the temple but donations are accepted.
