The Sunken Temple also called Wat Saam Prasob is found in Sangklaburi. This temple is known for being weathered , old and worn because it has been there sitting on the water for more than 30 years.
This temple was in the heart of a small town that was destroyed when Vajiralongkorn Dam in Thailand was built. These are the only remnants that can be seen until today of what was once a pivot place of the Mon and the Karen tribes. Many people visit this place by boat.
Weathered, old and almost forgotten as it may seem but I still wonder why many people still come to visit this place. It may be because of the unfortunate situation that this place went through and people are curious about it or is it because of the history that were rooted when this place was once on the ground and not under water. Oh well, let the place speak alone for itself!
Textures are everywhere. They can be interpreted with how we see things, how we describe things and how we even feel. All these make up the texture of the things that surround us.
My photos are stone formations of a Buddhist belief done in a particular area in Thailand. You see the stones as hard and rough. But how do you feel seeing these stones piled like the way they are? Having seen them for the first time drew my attention to getting the reason behind this belief. I, somehow, managed to know the reason but I could go on and on asking many whys. So, I may just conclude that what we make in our lives are textures of how we live that life.

Thai culture has so far been untouched. No matter how much people are exposed to the modernity of this world, they were able to keep their culture just as how it was planted to them by their forefathers. They have kept this heritage for more than 100 years. Just as it is. Amazing Thailand!
