Peaceful and serene Wat next to the Artist House
Feb 2020
We were drawn into this temple on our way to Baan Silipan the Artists House. It was definitely worth stopping by this Wat for an atmospheric introduction into this old riverside community, The ruins here date back 300 years to late Ayutthaya days. Nice murals, very peaceful. Wouldn't make a special trip to see.

A neat historical Wat complex next to the Khlong Bang Luang Artist House
Jul 2016 • Family
This Wat is right next to the Khlong Bang Luang Artist House, and after you park your car go in the opposite direction it’s right there. My friend who is Thai knew about the place and there were no other visitors besides us there. The Wat is very old and it seems like it’s been around since the 1700s and has Ayutthaya-type ruins on the grounds as well as part of an ancient gate which I think might be from the same time period. The grounds have a few buildings with many Buddha statues in them. One building has a large Buddha statue. These are very old statues and in some buildings some of the statues have accumulated quite a bit of dust. The Wat buildings may not be as old as the Ayutthaya-type ruins but they look pretty old and might be close to the same time period. There is also a more modern part of this Wat that borders the canal. It’s a nice quite spot although the modern part houses the monks so I don’t know if they want a lot of visitors in that section. I took quite a few pics of the grounds. It’s probably not worth going out of your way for but if like history and are waiting for the Khlong Bang Luang Artist House puppet show to begin it’s certainly worth the time. It’s nice to contribute to these gems as well because I feel like I’m preserving history. The grounds also have a lot of neat huge specimen trees. I saw a bunch of Cannonball trees and teak trees and other ornamentals, many were labeled.
