Wat Saket, Thailand

This card arrived as an official few years ago




TH-82554


The card shows the Golden Mountain (or Phu Khao Thong), one of the Buddhist temples in Bangkok. 
The Wat Saket is a low hill crowned with a gleaming gold chedi. Within, the 58-metre chedi houses a Buddha relic and welcomes worshippers all year round. The temple also hosts an annual temple fair in November, which lasts a week during Loy Krathong.
The temple is now a popular Bangkok tourist attraction and has become one of the symbols of the city.



the stamp is a definitive from 2007, showing Hat Pattaya.
