WAT TAHM-RAI-SAW
(White Elephant Pagoda)

"The white elephant pagoda is very nice as are a few other statues. But, the poor guy on the ground, blood and guts hanging out with birds eating him up, is not so nice. The grounds have some interesting things to see and reflect upon. Except for a few of us from our tour group, the place was very quiet. It does need some care and trash to be picked up. There were several friendly monks walking around that seemed pleased to see us!"
