  Wat Tham Plah

 

Thailand

The name of Wat Tham Pla in Chiang Rai translates as ‘Fish Cave Temple’, but due to the many macaque on the compound it is also referred to as Monkey Cave Temple. Here some are playing near the temple's laterite chedi.

 

The temple is located just about 15 kilometers south from the Thai border with Myanmar and some of its Buddha images seem to have been influenced by the typical Burmese style, as is the one on the right.
