If you are “temple” exploring in Roi et city, it is worth a look.Unfortunately the over population of pigeons roosting upon the ornate columns & eves are destroying the precious work of the craftsmen who labored endlessly to build this beautiful Buddhist temple.

Wat Nuea is a very underrated temple and overlooked by most visitors to Roi Et. It is located north-west of Bueng Phlan Chai Lake and exactly north of the Monument of Phra Khattiyawongsa, the first ruler of Roi-et. For Thai-temple enthusiasts it has some interesting things to offer.

There is a 1200 year old chedi made from bricks. In contrary to most chedis in Thailand, this one though bell-shaped like the others, has four corners.

Behind this unusual chedi are three Buddha statues that are completely black with a shiny surface. Some sources on the internet say that a black Buddha shows a connection to Buddhism, spreading to African regions. Some of black Buddha images in India even show African facial features. But Here in Roi Et I was unable to obtain any proof for this part of history.

On entering the compound, you will pass a 39 metre tall and colourful Buddha image in meditating pose. Underneath is a prayer hall with the regular gold coloured Buddha statue, that is surrounded by several life-sized wax figures of (I assume) famous monks of the recent past.

If you go there alone and not in the high-season, you might be lucky enough (like I was) to be given the “grand tour of the house” by a very friendly monk and a female temple staff. Basic knowledge of some conversational Thai would definitely enhance the chat and make the meeting as enjoyable for you as it was for me. Being invited like this, by people who did not speak a single word of English made it obvious to me how less Wat Nuea is frequented by foreign visitors, but still: they approached me and spent almost an hour showing me around. And no one asked for money or a donation. Of course I donated happily to the temple before leaving.

Even without that experience, I am sure a visit to Wat Nuea will not disappoint you.

Note that the temple grounds are very clean and well maintained.
