Reclining Buddha

This is a temple located in Hatyai city with a huge reclining Buddha. The temple has no walls and it also houses a columbarium. Good for a short visit.

A nice place to start of your Hat Yai tour, you will not spend much time here, but still worth to give it a visit. No entrance fee is charged.
