Wat Prang Torng - August 5, 2011

I decided to cycle to Wat Prang Torng to check out the 13th century Khmer prang. This wat is in Ban Putsa village, about 10K (6 miles) north of where I live.

This guy spends his days sitting in the exact same spot on a bridge over the north fork of the Lam Takhong river. I think he has cerebral palsy or some similar condition as he is unable to speak or walk. I always give him a few coins and talk to him a bit when I ride by.

Lintel of Prang Torng
I think the lintel depicts the Hindu god Indra (Phra In) riding his three-headed elephant, Erawan (Airavata).

Isaan (Northeast) Style Sausages
The sausages are hanging on the line below the row of advertising banners.

Nice Old Traditional Wooden House

Farm Truck
The engine can be removed and mounted to other devices such as a water pump or generator.

Party Spot
You can see the tent, chairs and stage in the background. This irrigation canal is being enlarged. Looks like a great place to swim.
