Bright temple donated by famous actor
Aug 2018 • Friends
This templehas been donated and constructed by a famous Thai actor, who later also became monk. On a special Buddhist day we had the opportunity to join their ceremony, walking around the main statue three times (day: Khao Pansa) with him taking the leed.

The temple is very nice, well decorated, as well as the surroundings with gardens and ponds.

Lokatedon the road from Bangkok to Nakhon Ratachima

Lovely building

Came here off a recommendation and wasn't disappointed. Gardens surround the temple area itself and whilst construction is still underway in parts it was a beautiful place to visit ...for free!

Pretty hot during the day but the overall environment is really nice as they have many green spaces spread out. Lots of beautiful sculptures.

Good for family break with kids.

Beautiful architecture

This temple is a ways off the tourist trail so it tends to get mostly Thai tourists. It's nice to visit a large beautiful temple in Thailand without hoards of foreign tourists. The exterior of the main temple is stunning. The interior is fairly underwhelming and mainly features a large statue of the temples founder.

The temple grounds are very nice and quite large. You can easily spend an hour here. Take your time and enjoy the atmosphere.

It's Huge !!! Lovely Gardens
Nov 2015 • Friends
Huge temple with manicured gardens and man made water features. When driving past, this place really stands out. The Buddhas are amazing.

Visited on a Sunday and there were hundreds of people buzzing around. They were arriving by the bus load. This place appears to be very popular with the Thais. Not many foreign tourists about. Very little signage in English.

Very large gardens with various water features and man made lake. Well maintained. Food and drinks are available from a kiosk in the gardens. It was really nice to walk around and admire the effort put into this place.

It appeared that the temple was making a lot of money with plenty of opportunity to "donate". From putting gold leaf on various Buddhas, being blessed by the monks, buying lottery tickets, putting coins in bowls, throwing coins in the fountain, praying or buying amulets and souvenirs etc.

Definitely worth a visit. If trying to get there when driving south back to Bangkok, be aware that you need to drive past the temple and keep to the local road on far left (rather than the main road) then take the U turn road to double back to the temple.

This is a very famous Wat and I had to stop.
The place is very well maintained and growing. It is the usual Buddhist wat and to appreciate it one has to be a little thai.
The statue inside representing a very famous monk is rather beautiful with a golden roof representing enlightenment. The thais go there to pray for him similar to saints reverence in western culture.
The coins meditation on the back is always worth doing.
The gardens are also very nice.
Overall it is a place worth visiting spending there 1 hour.

Beautiful Garden
Feb 2015 • Couples
There are two temples, one housing a huge gold monk and the other housing a large Buddha. The gardens and water features are beautiful. They seem to be adding to the grounds as there were washroom facilities on the far side of the park that were not open, however looked excellent. The topiary is excellent and worth a visit. The large temple housing the gold monk is still being developed. It is located close to Korat and is very visible from the main road.

Big landmark on the way going into/getting out of Korat downtown, makes U wonder what it's all about - Disneyland-like
Feb 2015 • Friends
It's some Disneyland-castle-like temple, which I've been wondering what it is all about? all these years whenever driving through Sikhio (where the temple is located) onto/from Korat. A few days ago, I finally visited the place for a merit-making or "tham bun" practiced by Thai Buddhists in general. My impression was.... a bit too much commercialism/business-oriented trace for a place of religion, but all the other visitors - mostly Thais - seemed to be happy enough to immerse themselves in such a Disneyland-like atmosphere.
