“Can you count the elephants?”

Reviewed 18 December 2014

About 20 kilometers outside of Khon Kaen is a temple simply simply loaded with elephant statues. I challenge anyone to attempt to count them. At the front of the temple is a small shrine where one can make one's needs known to on high. According to Thai friends, many come to this temple to pray for a child. Once a prayer is answered, the couple will bring one or two elephants to add to the possible thousands already on the temple grounds.
There are other little statues there as well. Some that caught my eye were little policemen presumably paying homage. This is a fascinating place with enormous life size elephant statue families as well as miniatures and everything in between. There is a four faced Buddha statue as well as others on the grounds, and a small zoo of sorts.
If anyone thinks all temples are the same, this one will prove you wrong. Intriguing!
