Wat Luang is a temple that is rarely visited by tourists. Even finding it is not easy, as it is situated in the middle of the forest and only accessible via a small mountain path. We present this treasure of Buddhism with many explanations on the founding myth and the changing history of the temple. Created over 700 years ago, unique relics were created. A 20 meter high Buddha, carved from a single teak trunk, is just as spectacular as a wooden Buddha lying in front of a beautifully carved wooden wall. Huge trees line the temple, which provides many more surprises. But most fascinating is the unique spirituality that radiates from this place: a quietness, which is only interrupted by birdsongs, that are heard only in few other places. Monks who can perform their prayers in an environment away from the outside world. And there is still this one special tree.
