Temples: Thai Temple - Wat Bang Kung

There is a 400 year-old banyan tree surrounded a 200 year-old temple 65km away from Bangkok in Ampawa. Its name is Wat Bang Kung. Wat Bang Kung is famous for the temple that is completely enclosed within the roots of a banyan tree called Bot Prok Po. The tree itself is like the pillars of the temple and that without the roots the temple would fall down. 
It is said that the huge Buddha statue inside the temple is very efficacious.
Worshipers would paste gold foil on the Buddha's body. Each part of the body represents different means of protection. Therefore, you can choose the part that you needed.

 Siddhartha Gautama in the temple has flourishing incense by worshipers and the body is covered with glittering gold foil.

 Even the small Buddha statues beside the huge Buddha statue are glittering too.

 A magical sight of Wat Phrathat surrounded and covered by thousand years bayan tree's root and integrated as one.

Siddhartha Gautama had listened to uncountable expectations and hopes of people at this isolated Wat Phrathat.  

The temple will make cassocks for Buddha statue using yellow clothes donated by worshipers.  This is as an act to accumulate virtue and blessing.

Donation box in front of Sankachai.
Worshipers can show your gratitude of thanks to Buddha by donating money.

Many Thai temples will put bowls in front of those small Buddha statues. Worshipers can throw in some money to pray. The money would be donated to the temple.
