So far I had visited so many temples, this temple had the least Buddha statue that I saw. But at least it is worth to visit, because of the statue is the 3rd largest Sleeping Buddha statue in the world. Remember try to avoid any donation.

Excellent place to visit, great for photo opportunities, just make sure you are firm with Tuk tuk drivers as they try to double fare when you get there.

A place for you to pray and taking some picture. If you want to do contribution to the monk and temple, you can do it there but remember to bring extra cash.

Looks so depressing. Nothing more that Reclining Buddha in a dilapidated temple. Can give it a miss, even if you have nothing to do,

This is about a half hours walk from central Hatyai over the other side of the railway bridge, past the big police station and immigration office, cross the first major junction which has a car showroom on the right hand opposite corner and walk until you come to a river. The temple is on the right on the river bank... More

The place is under some sort of maintenance thus a little bit messy. Still can visit but please note that there will be people there to ask for donation and to buy offerings for praying which is fine except that is like pressurise hard selling.

A large statue of Buddha laying on His side, giving your offering amount to purchase the incense and flower there is up to you , no fixed price. Just the big Buddha statue and some monks in the temple.

Felt conned in this buddhist temple although I am a buddhist myself; as when I approached to purchase joss sticks; the minimum payment required was 200 baht; a rip-off when usually most temples accept donations out of goodwill. They wanted me to fill in another form to donate 1000 baht even.. I prefer the one in songkhla- sleeping buddha more.... More
