Crowded place with just some buddhist temples. I was thinking that it's a monastery with large territory. But it's quite small, you need just about 30-50 minutes to visit everything.

Theres a brick oven where at regular intervals fire crackers are set off. Its crazy loud, but I assume its to ward off evil spirits. Beautiful temples, a nice place to spend a little time.

I am not sure if it works in a case you are using taxi to get there, but as I walked many hours from Kata through Big Buddha I had found there an amazing place of peace. There were many another " selfie-way tourists", but I didn't care. I spent long time upstairs inside the main church and after that... More

Try to visit it at night. Yes it does't work but the night view worse it. You can drive to territory without cue and see the difference

This Temple was incredible to see. There are multiple building that you can go into, areas to leave your gift and say a prayer. There are fire crackers going off often in one area.

This place is beautiful. I really enjoyed the architecture and culture. The main temple is said to house a fragment of bone from Buddha. You can put a prayer in the prayer tree or even light up a couple bricks of firecrackers. I recommend having a look if you into this kind of thing.
