Tat Luang - Up Close

Tat Luang - Up Close at night

Knowing how old and how damaged the original iconic Tat Luang (often spelled as That Luang) was, makes one appreciate how it appears these days.  Similar structures are being replicated in other provinces as well.

For the record, it was built by order of King Setthathirat in 1566.

Looking up close also allows us to see and appreciate the details.  Here are two pictures, one taken at night (above) and another taken during the day (below).
