This was my second Buddhist Temple (Wat) visit of the week. The first one was on Sunday in search of a yellow wall. Today, I was in search of an ancient pillar.
I found the pillar inside the inner sim of Wat Si Muang. Wat Si Muang was built in 1563 on the ruins of a Khmer Hindu Shrine. Legends say that during its time of construction, a pregnant woman sacrificed herself to appease the angry spirits. She threw herself to the pillar hole where the central pillar is to be placed.
Today, those who are trying to have children visit this Wat.
