Wat Pikulthong, Tumpat

Once again I am at Kota Bharu, this time I am very determine to visit every single famous Thai temple in Kelantan. Even though Kelantan is known to be high Muslim province, they are still many Thai temples around because their location is just beside the Thai border. So mostly their Thai temple is built at Tumpat. Tumpat is a town at Kelantan which is the nearest to the Thai border. I will start my Thai temple adventure with Wat Pikulthong which is also known by the local as "The Standing Buddha".
Donate any amount you want to pick up a bag of fish food yourself.
These are the fish you are feeding. Wow...I am expecting Koi fishes.
This temple is still under renovation so you will see a lot of structure like this and nothing much for you to photograph.
The making of the statue.
This statue is just completed. The craftsmanship of the Thai people are really excellent.
This structure is done and ready for the locals to say their prayer.

In this temple, there are two food stalls here. One of them is making this Khao Jam. 
Khao Jam is one of the famous Thai delicacies. It is a mixture of vegetables, green rice and santan kelapa. Pure vegetarian food.

Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - The moment you took the first bite, you will have the feeling is like too many green feelings in your mouth. All are vegetables and some are raw. Those who does not like to eat vegetables may hate this. But overall, this is a healthy meal.

The rice is green in color because they are cooked together with a mixture of blended wild fern.
Another stall is selling BBQ chicken. This is our traditional way of BBQ, unlike the modern way where there is a special BBQ machine to make the fried chicken BBQ.

Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Overall: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - I like the traditional way of making this because the charcoal flavor is stronger this way.

This stall is also selling Pisang Bakar and also Somtam which is a Thai rojak.
