Impressive place, but not for young kids, who suffer from the heat and humidity, and might loose patience at a place which is holly to many believers.

A fabulous temple which on our outing we found that it is mainly visited by Thais. None the worse for that though, if you like temples don't miss this one

The Queen's Buddha is so imposing and regardless of your religious beliefs is a very serene, beautiful experience. It is a must if you are in the area.

A visit here is worthwhile in any case, but can sometimes be a bit crowded on weekends. Parking space there is always enough.
