Wat U Mong - The Buddha cemetery

Wat U mong is a tunnelled Wat just outside of Chiang Mai in the Jungle. Its pretty cool but the thing I really loved about it wasn't the actual Wat which was beautiful but the Buddha Cemetery and the Mural room. The Mural room was very moving, it was covered in simple paintings depicting the teachings of Buddha and putting it in a modern context. Interestingly there was a mixture of Bible quotes and Hindu deities. I guess in Buddism a good message is just a good message no matter by whom or how it is told.
