It was very peaceful to wander around within the grounds. There were roosters wandering with us! Beautiful buildings and landscaping. Doesn't take long to see it, but a nice stop on the way to or from the palace. Very pretty and also free!

Dominates horizon if you approaching on Narodom Blvd, I consider it one of the best view in PP. Next after Mekong. Unbelievably captative a giant green clock, showing seconds! Get a walk around the hill, - advice of a buddhist.

Free entry, and you are allowed to wander at whim. It's unbelievably peaceful and very relaxing, you feel that you're somewhere special

We took a cyclotour of the city center and stopped here and learned a little history. Did not have time to walk around but there is a nice park near by.

There are two main temple buildings with steps to get up to their entrances, but the one on the right (as facing the temple) with cow statues at the bottom of the steps had its door closed when I was there. So I only went up the one on the left which was pretty ordinary inside, except for a big... More

Nice pagoda. But if you have seen any Buddhist temple don't waste your time. A couple of buildings with Buddha statues inside. Nothing special to see.

We went on the day of new year as it was our last day here. Here there was a small get together just for locals. The temple isn't amazing itself and rather small. Everyone was staring at us and made us feel not welcome at all. Enjoy!

A large Wat in the town centre. We wondered through as a short cut from our hotel towards the centre and found it enchanting. It is a working, worshiping and living area for the monks who you'll meet there. There are temples and stupas and things going on. There is no entrance fee and the gates seem to be open... More

Small, quiet, worth a visit. We accidentally entered the Wat from the backdoor, but no one really said anything. We saw a small shrine where an old man beckoned to us. He gave us a blessing and was surprised when we donated a small amount. It was a cool experience. The Wat itself: outside is great. Inside is a bit... More
