Thai Junk refers to a ship rustically built of wood with a combination of traditional details and modern technology. It doesn't refer to a "garbage"! So when you hear, "We're going to the Ayodhaya Junk" - you're actually going to a SHIP, not a garbage dump!
Phra Chedi Si Song Rak in Loei - Phra That Si Song Rak was built in 1560 A.D. as a symbol of friendship between Somdet Phra Maha Chakkaphat of Ayutthaya and Phrachao Chaiya Chetthathirat of Lan Xan, the two kings. It was at this spot that the two kings vowed not to invade each other's territory. Instead they decided to unify their armies so that they could fight as one against the invading army from Burma. This unique temple symbolizes friendship and unity. Moreover, visitors visiting the temple should be careful not to wear red or offer red flowers, as red symbolizes violence and blood.
