Brent and I spent a few pleasurable days touring Bangkok.
The chedi, also called stupa or sometimes pagoda is the most important and sacred structure of the wat. The stupas are conical shaped as Budda used cloth material to demonstrate what shape a stupa should take.
The mondop has a square and cubical shaped pavilion with a spired roof. These can be used as a place to store scriptures or objects used in temple ceremonies.
The weather was fantastic.
The faith of the people has definitely helped them through their tough times.
