Wat Phra Non : Kamphaeng Phet

Wat Phra Non
is the renovated Buddhist monastery with four laterite walls. Within is compound, there are a square shaped well and bathrooms.

Its chapel whose base and pillars are made of laterite has the boundary stones (or SEMA) carved in as a diety in the Thai salute manner and other delicate designs. Behind the church is situated a vihara housing the reclining image of Buddha.

The vihara's wall was partly cut into space blocks replaced by balusters. Another striking spot is its large pillars. Nowadays, this construction styles are rarely found.
