Good Fences


Wat Phra Tat Doi Suthep

Fence surrounding the gold Chedi

The bells on the fence are donated by people who visit the temple.  You can ring the bells to let Buddha know that you have arrived at the temple.  When enough bells are donated they are taken by the monks, melted down and made into a new Buddha statue.
