Present Thailand: Chao Pho Sua Shrine
The same site today--Chao Pho Sua Shrine (The Shrine of the Godfather Sua). Within the last five years the entire structure was removed except for the front walls and gates. A new larger two-story facility was built to accommodate the crowds at what is still one of the most atmospheric temples in Asia.
