More Wat Mahathat Temple Photos

Main temple area. This Thailand temple is exceptionally clean and lovely for photos.
 
It is summertime right now and it's super hot in this chedi area.
 
Thai marigolds do not last long in the heat here!

 
From inside the row of Buddhas and looking out toward the chedis.

Wat Mahathat is known as being the birthplace of Jatukam Ramathep amulets. A few years ago there was a frenzy for these amulets and all the temples in Thailand began creating their own Jatukam style amulets. Eventually the market crashed for all these other temples, but Wat Mahathat still has the best amulets - and they still sell very well today.
