Very small but worth the walk or songtow over. The reclining Buddha is incredible to look at and one of the largest in the world.

Once you enter the temple premises, you can feel the tranquility compared to the chaos on the road outside. The sleeping Buddha is reputed to be the third largest in the world. Always feels good to spend some... More

Other than the Buddha himself, there isn't much to see. There are beautiful smaller temples but other than that, nothing much. Recommend to stop here as a break.

Housed in a rectangular pavilion, the reclining Buddha is impressively big. A few other pieces of ornate temple architecture to also visit. I enjoyed a short visit here as once you have seen the main site of the large Buddha, you are basically done. There was a small festival when I visited which made it more fun.

You can find the 3rd largest sleeping Buddha in the world here. Very serene and spiritual place. I sad down and enjoyed the moment here for a while. Recommended for a short peaceful retreat. Free admission.

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.

Yes, the reclining buddha inside a wat is very beautiful. But that's all. Nothing much to see. We go inside the temple and that is a lady asking us whether to buy a gift for the monk and get blessing at 300 thb. We agreed and when we knee down and ready for the blessing,the lady suddenly take out a... More

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.
