Wat Luang Phor Sim in Chiang Mai, Thailand




Luang Phor Sim is one of the disciples of Ajahn Mun (note: photo of Luang Phor Sim above is obtained from Vimutti Linage website). He had since passed away but his temple, located some distance away from Chiang Mai- is at the mountains. I have included the name of the temple above- again my apologies that I have not obtained the name of the temple in English.


Below are the pictures of the temple that I have taken during my visit there:
