Wat Saket, Thailand

This card arrived as an official few years ago


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.
