The Golden Temple
Oct 2017 • Family
If there is a pure white temple in Chiangrai, there is a golden temple in Chachongsao province. It's over a hundred kilometers away from bangkok. This temple would make you think of the story KING MIDAS.

There are more than 40,000 Buddhist temples (wat) in Thailand, and as I commented in another review, once you have visited the first dozen or so they tend to become a blur through their sameness.

Not so with Wat Paknam Jolo which with its all-gold exterior and interior is in sharp contrast to the majority ofl red, green, blue and gold temples. I believe it is the only all-gold wat in Thailand.

Bang Khla is about a 30 minute drive from Chachoengsao and is well worth the effort.

One of the best temples in Thailand...

Recently visited this temple(June 2016). Stunning and atmospheric.
Thai temples can vary in quality all the way up to very good or great. This one I am pleased to say is at the high end.
Deserves a gold medal!
There is a waterway nearby and the whole place especially the temple feels peaceful and inspiring.

This is one of those attractions that leave an indelible memory in one's travels. The gold colored temple is a photographer's paradise when walking around the four sides. I viewed the inside of the temple from the open doorway as the several steps for entry are challenging for the handicapped. Nonetheless, the outer building is definitely worth taking the trip.

A gold temple.

This Temple is the only one in the whole of Thailand to have a gold coloured ordination hall.
