Wat Tha Sung is located in Uthai Thani on the Chao Phraya River. There are almost no large shopping malls in the city, and it is full of a strong taste of ancient times. The century-old street, the elegant old mansion, every place here will make you feel like going back to the past. Uthai Thani is not far from Bangkok, and it is about two and a half hours by car. The transportation is also convenient, and the bus can reach it directly.
It is about 30 minutes’ drive from Udon Thani city center to Wat Tha Sung. Wat Tha Sung is also known locally as Wat Chantharam, and it has a more apt name Glass Temple. In terms of appearance, this temple is not too surprising. The silver roof is slightly inferior to the dazzling white temple, and it is not acs large as the Wat Phra Kaew, but if you look closely, you will find that there are a lot of people who go to the temple. When you follow the crowd into the temple and arrive at the main hall, your expressions change in an instant, and your eyes widen as if you were afraid of missing the highlight here.
The beams and pillars in the temple are made of marble, each of which is inlaid with diamond-shaped mirror mosaics piece by piece, and countless mirror surfaces reflect dazzling light. There are mirrors on all sides in the temple. You will feel it unreal when you walk in here, like being in an illusory world. This feeling is too strange, and people who have been there can’t express it in words. You can only feel it if you go there.
The top is also made of mirrored collages. The most surprising thing is that the large Swarovski crystal lamps are dazzling, and people can’t help but feel emotional. The most luxurious palace is also this. The dazzling large crystal lamp and the gleaming silver mirror complement each other. Walking in the hall, you will feel that the time seems to slow down, and the 100-meter-long passage seems to have no end.
