Saraburi, Thailand40 contributions29 helpful votes
This was about a good 2 hour drive from Saraburi but worth the trip. So much to see here, you can easily spend a day here. Everything is so ornate and colourful with the elephant head building the focus point. Inside this building there are many floors with so many items, artifacts and paintings on display. Good place to come for tham bun and general visiting.

During my visit to Nakhon Ratchasima, I visited this awesome temple. In my first visit I liked this place too much. They have a good car parking place followed by some souvenir shop. Followed by a big lake and in the mid of the lake this beautiful temple presenting its religious, gorgeous and artistic Buddhist temple. The shape of the temple looks like a face of the elephant and top of the temple looks like the back cover of tortoise. Both are uniquely designed. The temple also have a basement division. Each part of the temple is with reach architectural carving, design, painting and structure. The temple showing morals of Buddhism on the wall painting. The calm environment made this place divine.
