Wat Neramit Wiphatsana

Dedicated to a popular local monk and very reminiscent of some of the larger temples in Bangkok, Wat Neramit Wiphatsana was built for meditating monks and is located on a hill near Phra That Si Song Rak southwest of Loei. The temple’s ordination hall and pagoda are made of laterite and illustrated with murals created by Pramote Sriphrom – a famous muralist who has already spent a number of years working on the temple. The temple also features a waxwork image of its founder.
