A Ghost Bride's Shrine

Wat Mahabut was originally built to honor a helpful monk. Today, it's famous for a tragic love story. Mae Nak was pregnant with their first child when Mak was conscripted in the army where he was seriously wounded. He returned home to his family not knowing they had perished during childbirth. Mae Nak, refusing to be bound by death, lived happily with him until he realized she was a ghost as his neighbors had warned him. He fled to Wat Mahabut to escape her wrath where she was eventually exorcised and has her own altar today. Leave a flower for Mae Nak for favor.
