I think the smaller versions of temples you describe are spirit houses, we've seen them everywhere in Thailand. Every house/plot of land/temple is supposed to have one. We had one for our plot of land and one for our villa. The buffalo doctor's other job was to advise people of the best date on which to erect their spirit houses and came along with special offerings to bless them.


All those temples are so breath-takingly beautiful!
It seems hard to reconcile them with the prison ~ I'd love to read his book ~
Thanks for sharing ~

Welcome to our travel blog! We recently moved back to the United states after living abroad for eight years - four in Brussels, Belgium and four in Singapore. We have traveled to fifty-six countries and hope to make it to 100 one day! We like to travel slowly, eat local foods, meet people, take lots of photos, and learn about different cultures. We hope you enjoy our adventures, we love to hear from our readers and answer questions.
