" ...The late Tok Raja is one of the famous Thai Chief Abbots of Kelantan state of Malaysia, followed by another famous Tham Chau Khoon known as Ah Kong. Every year during the Kathina celebration, their temple, Wat Uttamaram, Kg.

NOTE:- Virtually ALL the images appear in this site have two dimensions in their respective display. I think most seasoned Thai amulet lovers probably possess a pair of hawk eyes second to the Jews in the diamond trades, so, it is the intention to provide a LARGER view of each thumbnail in order for everyone to enjoy, authenticate or verify their originality. The technique to fully explore the convenience of this display system is - even when the larger view appears on the browser, you should use your mouse to click again to see the actual explosive view. Please bear with the slower download time of those explosive views. Enjoy.
