U Mong means "tunnel" in Thai, hence the name Wat U Mong. Situated at the foot of Doi Suthep, the temple is surrounded by large forests and lake water. But the temple is a little deep, either navigate or strike a Song Tie. The Buddha statues of other houses are all in the Buddha Hall. This one is in the tunnel, taking off shoes and entering. The temple in the tunnel, the first time to see. The masonry on the top of the wall is mottled with history. In the Buddhist hall, it is very suitable for meditation. Today, I saw two temples, one is Shuanglong Temple on Mount Su Tie, the other is Wumeng Temple under Mount Su Tie, the other is Wumeng Temple on Mount Su Tie, the other is rich and honorable gate, with endless guests, lively and extraordinary, the other is like a hermit in the world, quiet in the world, simple and quiet. PS - "In Chiang Mai there is also a imitated monastery of the same name, built in the old city, a smaller scale. To get a ride to this monastery and let the driver know what you mean, you have to make it clear that you are going to "Wat U Mong Thera Jan".
One year later, I went to Wumeng Temple. Choose to walk in the early morning, according to the navigation, starting from the inn outside the ancient city, walking three kilometers. Through Ningman Road and the market near Songda Temple, monks can be fed. The Monastery of Wumeng is very quiet in the morning. Many small animals are surrounded by dogs and dogs as soon as they enter. There are chickens around the pagoda and the forest temple feels happy. Through the tunnel, Buddha worship is more tranquil, scattered Buddha statues and stone carvings more plain. I really like it. The Pagoda of Wumeng Temple is a Sukhotai style, which is different from the ancient city of Chiang Mai. By the time we left at 9:30, there were many tourists, a little more than last year. So we should also be lucky to have the chance to enjoy the peace of time.
There are innumerable temples in Chiang Mai. After many visits, Wat Umong is the most Buddhist temple among all temples. Situated at the foot of Su Tie Mountain, surrounded by forests and lakes, there is no golden-walled magnificent hall, no visitors, but there are stone gods left with traces of time, smart tree pigeons, gentle dogs and chickens with long legs. U Mong means "tunnel" in Thai. On both sides of the tunnel in the temple, there are many Buddhist shrine caves arranged in disorder. In the dark environment, there is a kind of seclusion. There are people practicing meditation in it. Wumeng Temple is also known as the best meditation temple in northern Thailand. Next time I have a chance, I want to sign up for a meditation course.
There are many famous temples in Chiang Mai and many famous temples in China, such as Shuanglong Temple, etc. But Wumeng Temple is very strange to Chinese people. The whole temple is quiet. There are many interesting little people in it, and the two dragons at the gate are also very distinctive.
The special features of Wumeng Temple are obvious: one is a tunnel like an air-raid shelter, the other is quiet. Not many visitors visit the temple a little farther from the ancient city, because they usually need to visit the temple specially rather than by the way. There are many vegetation in the temple, and the entrance is more like a botanical garden. The orange color of the monk is especially in the full-eyed green. The prominent and attentive reading of the Bible is a respectful aspect.
The temple is quiet. It's not a tourist attraction. It's a good place to make movies. Next time you come back, I feel it's suitable for the close-up of Changjiao. We were in such a hurry that we did not capture the essence of the temple. Photo-loving relatives must not miss this place, which is quite different from the splendid temples in the ancient city.
I like this temple which is called "the temple in the forest" very much. It is far away from the noise of the world and quietly situated among the mountains and forests. I like the temple's long meditation hole, long tunnel, dim light, find a hole, sit cross-legged, empty everything, very comfortable.
Wat U Mong, usually translated as "Wumeng Temple" or "Wumeng Temple", I prefer to call it "Wumeng Temple". When he told the driver his destination, he had some doubts and kindly reminded him not to be good. Stubborn as I, unwilling to regret, even if disappointed. And this is one of my favorite encounters. In the evening, with few tourists and heavy shadows of trees, our footsteps seem very quiet. The moss climbs up the stone steps, and the guardian gods are more solemn because of their incompleteness.
There are no group tourists here, only quiet shade covered everything. Tunnel temples are solemn and ingenious. Please stop talking and don't disturb people who are practicing meditation. Under the tree, take an egg flower and put it on your head. It's beautiful and quiet.
