Leaning Pagoda of Wat Sakhla

Leaning Pagoda of Wat Sakhla

Wat Sakhla in Ban Sakhla dates back to the reign of King Taksin in the 1780’s. The landmark of this temple is the 26 meter high Leaning Stupa which was built in 1884. It is in the same style as the stupa in Wat Mahathat in Ayutthaya. These drone photos were taken during the annual worship fair during Visakha Bucha in May every year. Ban Sakhla is surrounded by fish and crab ponds and there are very few roads.
