The All Wooden Wat Pan Tao Sermon Hall

The Wat Pan Tao is an all-teak sermon hall, constructed of unpolished panels and held up with enormous pillars. We stumbled across it when walking up Ratchadamnoen Road through the centre of the old city.

The sermon hall, or the viharn caught our eye with its striking, layered, triple roof design together with all the orange flags right next to it. Teams of young monks in their trademark orange cloths were also cleaning the grounds.

We didn't have much time, but Wat Pan Tao isn't very large so its worth dropping into if you're walking close by. Another time, and we would have continued away from Ratchadamnoen Road, where we would have come across the much more formidable Wat Chedi Liang which has an enormous sixty metre high chedi - a mound-like structure containing Buddhist relics.

Meanwhile, here are some more photos of Wat Pan Tao.
