The Other Side of กลันตัน

Wat Machimarram
Wat Pothivihan

* the biggest reclining Buddha statue in Southeast Asia at Wat Pothivihan, Kg Jambu, Jajahan Tumpat, Kelantan.


It is amazing to note that,

for a reputedly conservative state

with 95% strong Malay Muslim population,

to have remarkable temples and gigantic Buddha statues,

undisturbed, dotting its entire landscape.

Well, this is ~ KELATTE !


*Note : " กลันตัน " is " Kelantan " in Thai.
