Beautiful temple

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.

A serene and holy worship place. The Majestic Lying Down Buddha has a smile of numerous meanings to worshippers through the whisper of Lord Buddha.

Different from many of the must see Wats and Pagodas up in the north of Thailand, the influence of Indonesia is ever present.

Just visited Wat Hatyai Nai again. Fantastic sleeping Buddha. The friendly monks gave me their blessings and had the opportunity to donate and make merits. For those who just want to go to any temple and selfishly take selfies, etc while "avoiding" giving any donations like what the 2 previous reviews were... then please dont waste your time going to...
