Stunning views

A real eye catcher this temple, I took heaps of photos, there is a great view from the top of the pagoda, better than the historical ruins in the old town.

even we visited this temple during Songkran and it was packed with Thai tourists, it has been a much better experience than other temples. This is because it's in much better conditions and offers you the possibility to climb, to enter and to walk around to enjoy the view. It would just be much better when they would preserve the...

It would be a good idea to go there early in the day to avoid the heat of the sun and the crowd of people. Considering the date of our visit,... More

The place has a magnificent ruin along with an active temple. It was well worth the steep climb to visit the 6 Buddhas in the dome and make my offering. The ruins too are well dressed. Wished I could have stayed longer to enjoy the magnificence of the place.
