“Just beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This Temple is just one of many in the old city and if you are a Temple person it would be a must to visit. Best time from about 5 pm onward as the monks come in to the Temple to chant.

“Calming grounds, nice walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

The entire property is quite beautiful. within the city there are many wats to see. this one was a walk from our guesthouse on soi 5, but well worth it as there are several trees to sit under and many individual temple buildings. i particularly liked the lying buddha.
