Awesome Temple - Wat Bangbao

Wat bangbao is a temple located opposite to the Bangbao School opposite the turning to the Bangbao fishing village. Within the temple area is a monk complex. The other fishing communities there include koh chang and klong son villages and have their own small temple called "wat". As compared to the other temples present in the ko chang island, this is least visited by the tourists. No doubt, it has a historic value too but it is less visited because it is less noticed. Few people know about it. It may also be a bit less spectacular unlike the other temples. It is present by the side of the main road.


Many religions have beliefs in temples and there are a lot of various temples in existence. Mesopotamian temples , Egyptian temples , Greco-roman temples , pagan temples , Zoroastrian temples , Sikh temples , Hindu temples , Buddhist temples , Jain temples , Christian temples , temples in the latter day saint movement and Masonic temples etc are the famous ones.


Any place related to religion has some kind f peace in itself. The beliefs of people make the place worthy, sacred and holy. Similar are the mosques that Muslims use as a place of worship all over the world. Temples have immense value in many religions and this value cannot be denied. The buildings show the class of Asian architecture that is unique in its colors and making. The Buddish natives and the people from all over the world are welcomed here. The temple has a beautiful building in which the religious and cultural colors are clearly evident. The place is famous for its ancient values and is visited by the visitors from all over the world. There are many superstitious beliefs associated with the temple as well and people seem to strictly believe and associated towards them. Along the building, there is a market that has colorful and eye catching stuff that attract the people.


Wat bangbao is a small temple but the respect and nobility of all the temples whether they are small or large is the same because each small and large temple is considered sacred and holy and is of immense religious value. The followers have hearty attachments with these places and in each temple religious activities continue at various parts of the day. The believers cannot bear anything that is against the nobility, dignity, modesty and respect of their religious area. The dress needs to be modest and decent to enter a temple; it is considered a pious act. The body needs to be covered , shoes should be kept outside , pictures should be avoided in the prohibited area and each and every respect element should be given its required importance otherwise criticism is clear and legal as it is obligatory for every person of every religion to respect the religion of other. If you do respect, you will surely enjoy the spiritual and religious satisfaction and a true peace of mind that the world lacks now a days.
