The elephant statue is huge. The inside decor is beautiful. We climbed to the top. The views were excellent.

Many things in Thailand are ornate. The devotion, skill and creativity inside this 'walk in elephant' exceed many I have seen. We discovered many Thai people are too shy to try speaking up on buses when hearing our destination enquiries. However every time we were helped discretely often by people just about to get off.

Really nice place , we got there early in morning before the crowds arrived . It cost me 400 baht and my wife who is Thai 200 which is a bit annoying . The best way to get there is sky train to bearing and than jump in a Taxi .

A lovely temple with a terrific history. The work that has gone here, down to the very smallest of details is truly unique. A beautiful place to stop and relax or read all the history in this fascinating place.
