    One important temple in Ubon.There's the Ubosot where built in the early period of King Rama III. It 's a mixed style of Thai and Lao art ,inside the Ubosot decorated with mural painting. In the same area, there ‘re a wooden library or "Hor Trai" in thai, located in the pond center. It’s one of the most beautiful libraries which still remain in Thailand. The meaning to built the library in the pond for protect insects that can destroy paper,leather and clothes.Apart from buildings, I think this temple have a good atmosphere where you can relax and slowly taking pictures.
