Local trip to old temple at Ke Kaew


Had a quick trip out to look at some local ruins. This is an old building build around 1300 Century AD.  It's obviously beyond repair. Supposed to be of historical interest but to me it just looked sadly neglected.  However it as on a whim we decide on a quick trip out away from the house. Just somewhere to go for a ride. Its always good to have a destination and being it's only 12 kilometers from our house so no issue. And believe it or not..... Wanna had never been. Funny, me showing her things in the area where she grew up!!!!

So a few photos and also there is a small Buddha shrine where you can take a chance at getting your fortune told. Yes you shake the tin with a lot of sticks in it.(in the left hand corner of the photo)  Choose the first one that falls out onto the floor, (requires some practice to only let one fall out.) then on left side of the statue is a board with about 40 different fortune forecasts. All sticks are numbered. The number on the stick matches one of the fortune cards.  Wanna's appeared to be good.  I could not make head of tail of mine. Perhaps a good thing....
