Mukdahan Travel Guide :

Wat Si Mongkhon Tai 

           The province of Mukdahan border Laos and is located in the northeastern region of Thailand. The topography of the province is mainly high plateau with dense forests in the west, while the eastern part is mainly used for agriculture. The weather is hot even in winter, with the maximum or 33 degree centigrade and the minimum is around 10 degrees centigrade. The area gets little rain but it is still lush and green with 18 national forests and wildlife preserves.

 

           The famous Mekong River runs for around 70 kilometers along the province's eastern border and is its lifeline. However, other water sources also exist like Huai Chanod, Huai Muk and Huai Bung Ee, which are all streams. These streams are narrow and tend to get very shallow during the hot dry season.

           The province is home to eight tribes spread across 7 districts. Each tribe has its own tradition and culture. However, there is more to see in Mukdahan than this. The province is also home to the most revered image in the area. The Buddha image is enshrined in Wat Si Mongkhon Tai.

           Wat Si Mongkhon Tai is located on the banks of Mekong River right near the immigration check point to Laos. Within the compound of the temple, you can find shops that sell souvenirs and products from Laos.

           According to a legend, the founder of Mukdahan, Thao Kinnaree discovered two images under a Boddhi tree. One of the images was made from iron and Wat Si Mongkhon Tai was built to house it. However, the image sank into the ground so the second image was house in the temple.

           Just opposite the temple is an old Boddhi tree, which is a popular place for visitors to have their fortune read.
