The first important check in area

Going to pay respect to Luang Pho Kaan

"The body of Phra Khru Phattharakitwibun, also known as Luang Pho Kaan, is still intact inside a glass coffin and does not rot.

The former abbot's body is located in the main hall of the temple, also known as Luang Pho Kaan. Phra Kru Pattharagitwibun was a famous abbot from the eastern region and is enshrined inside the temple.

Luang Pho Kaan developed Wat Huai Yai to become prosperous and well-known until his passing on September 13, 2006, at the age of 86. His body was found to be incorruptible and has since become an object of veneration.

Visiting to pay respects to the mummified body is considered a great merit."
