Wat Pa Thampanwanaram (วัดป่าธัมมปาลวนาราม) is a beautiful temple complex currently under new development. The main feature of the temple grounds is the large Viharn (Congregation Pavilion) at the center, which is currently under construction. This beautiful Viharn is being made with teak pillars and red wood. At the front of this wood pavilion is a gorgeous, green Buddha with 9-headed Naga hood, in front of which is a smaller gold Buddha with 5-headed Naga hood.
In Buddhism, a green Buddha represents harmony, balance, youthful vigor, and karma. While green is sometimes associated with jealousy (i.e. being "green with envy"), Buddhist believe that if you meditate on green, your jealousy will turn into wisdom. A gold Buddha is associated with knowledge, enlightenment, purity, happiness, and freedom. So, when placed together, these two Buddha statues have a powerful meaning, inspiring the worshiper to live up to the best version of themselves.
Wat Pa Thampanwanaram also has some lovely garden grounds around the large Viharn, and if you walk along a path to another part of the temple complex, you'll find a large pavilion filled with Buddhist statues and photographs. This temple is located less than 10 minutes from the Sakon Nakhon airport, and only about 2 kilometers from the Route 22 roadside temple Wat Si Suk Samran, with its large gold Buddha statue visible from the highway.
