Beautiful Little Temple In Bhan-Dung Isan Country. Story As Usual.

Over the many years of visiting Thailand, on my travels I always pop into a temple In the area I am visiting and have a few words for family and friends that may need a word or two and burn a few joss stick and candles.
This is the latest temple that I visited in Bhan-Dung ; it is located 80 kilometres from Udon-Thani.
It was such a beautiful little temple, that I decided to take a picture of it.
The sign in the foreground says no swimming in the pond, funny but the Thai people
Would never disrespect any temple so who is the sign for??
Well I hope you are all well and happy.
Whatever or whoever your God maybe, God bless you all.
Walkabout John.

    Another beautiful and colorful picture, John. It's kind of weird, how most Europeans wouldn't like to have shrines like that in their neighbourhood since they consider these colors as "too corny", but in foreign countries they're amazed by them! ;-)
    I thank you for all your kind comments, mate! And I was suprised to hear, that you are a tractor-fan!
    Take care, Colja.
