Nearby Local Temple under Construction

Here is an example of a new Temple being constructed.  Noticed the bamboo scaffolding, which is the most common way construction (other than large commercial construction) is done throughout Thailand.  The “Teak” wood used on overhead ceiling along with large columns inside were actually previously grown on site for the past 20-30 years.

You may also notice a picture with 9 large stones.  8 of these are “boundary stones” and are placed underground, outside around the Temple at the cardinal points (North, West, East and South, NW, NE, SW and SE).  The 9th larger stone is placed in the center, underneath the Temple (usually under the principal Buddha image).  All Thai Buddhist Temples have these stones in place.  A Temple cannot be opened/dedicated until these stones are in place.
