Wat Plukkhla is near to the airport at Hatyai. It appears to be an older temple, that has recently seen a big increase in its income, particularly from Singapore and Malaysia, which it is spending on establishing new statues and buildings. At the centre of the temple is the monumental Buddha Lapah Damrong (Buddha Stable-Wealth), which sits atop the unfinished sīma. In the courtyard below are four long hallways housing modern Buddha statues.
