A revered monk and the former abbot of Wat Choeng Khao (a temple), Luang Pho Daeng passed at the age of 90 in 1979.


Mummification was a rather long process in which they lived on nothing but nuts and seeds for over a year and drank salt water in order to reduce the water content in their bodies. After his death, his body did not decompose, to the amazement of residents and followers, who placed his sacred body in a glass coffin.
