The reclining Buddha Image at Wat MekPrasit, A siamese Thai Buddhist Temple in Ipon City, Perak, Malaysia

A visual tour outside the temple shows a dual seven-headed serpents guarding entrance to Wat Mekprasit. It is similar in concept with Wat Chayamangkalaram, but personally I felt the paint works and design are more inclining to Indian art. The walls are painted with Buddha images as well as teaching of Buddhism. The four-faced Buddha which makes popular by Erawan site at Bangkok is a common image found in most Malaysian Buddhist temples with Thai principle. The temple is not exactly large in its scale but I would guess it serves a good location for Siamese Buddhism followers for seeking peace and serenity.
