The early morning monks walked at 6.20 every day. It was so beautiful and peaceful place. The temple looks different after dawn.

Not really much to see at this working temple. Highlight was feeding the massive catfish in the moat surrounding the temple.

Cute little island well worth a short visit. Unlike the other pagodas inside the historical park, this is an active temple in everyday use by locals. A nice and lively counterpoint.

This temple situates in the middle of water. Ancient pagoda still remains and Buddha's footprint in a small hall also. Local people always come to this place to feed fish in the lake. There are numerous catfish in huge size.

The chanting began as I approached the Wat. It was wonderful to visit and walk around this Wat. The beauty at sunset was breathtaking. The fish in the moat swim all over the place!
