The shining chapel of Pak Lam Kha-Khaeng Temple in Thailand’s Kanchanaburi province, 130km west of Bangkok, has been crafted from stainless steel and is uniquely built to impress religious worshippers and visitors alike. Described as the world’s only stainless steel ubosot, Pak Lam Kha-Khaeng temple in Sri Sawat district offers tourists a glimpse of this shiny chapel carved and embossed with delicate Thai craftsmanship. The temple’s abbot said he wanted to make a difference by building this ubosot so it would one day become one of Thailand’s outstanding historic sites. Also, it was because stainless steel is such a strong and durable material. It took seven years and Bt30 million to complete the Buddhist chapel, which was 4.5m wide, 12m tall, and 9.5m in length. Apart from the ubosot, a large Buddha image in stainless steel of 15m in height was also built within the same premises in order to honour His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
