Sanjao Posuea ( ศาลเจ้าพ่อเสือ ) 171, Soi 5, Thaosura Rd ; Tel 044 259246
This is clearly the biggest and most richly decorated Sanjao you can visit in Korat. It is made up of a main building, quite spacious and with several internal shrines, plus five or six more external shrines (one of them placed on a second floor), a votive pole, an incineretor, and other votive objects and accessories. It is found outside the eastern city gate, on a lane extending to the east into the homonymous community.
Internal decorations, ornaments and objects in the main building are gorgeous and they, alone, deserve a visit. If you are lucky you can assist a particualr religious ceremony taking place inside. The full name includes also the words Tung Swaang ( ทุ่งสว่าง ).
During my “Silk Route” journey in 2012 I travelled through Iran and of course the route Alexander the Great took to Persepolis the ancient City of Persia. Now in ruins, this UNESCO World Heritage is one that you really need to see to understand and get a feel of. The area of the site is vast and seems to just keep going and going. It is pretty amazing to walk around and imagine how it would have looked in the 4th century.
In 2016 just before y return to the UK I could not resist visiting the beautiful Country of Malaysia. On this occasion I spent some time in Pekan, where there are many traditional Malay wooden houses and some traditional wooden palaces, some are in great shape and some, well they are more like this one, how could i not fall in love with it and want to record it’s standing before it becomes so derelict that no one can see it’s former beauty.
In 2016 I lived in Nong Khai in the North East of Thailand for 9 mths. One of the few historical buildings there is this beautiful Governers Mansion built in 1915 and used between 1929 1nd 2000. In now stands empty as a museum of sorts.
I have used photographic license to give this slideshow and it’s homage to the building some atmosphere,along with the music I hope you enjoy?!
