My wife and I live near here and walk through it often. This temple complex incorporates a lot of nature into the grounds, with trees and other features throughout. The temples are immense and grand and beautiful within.

Very nice temple with all of architecture to admire. Keep adequate time in hand and don't make a tight programme if you want to admire past and present.

Wat Jed Yod seems to suddenly appear when you walk through the path to the Chedi. The main structure us very old dating back hundreds of years. One is immediately struck by how old it appears and getting closer you can see that some of the figures around the base are broken. As with all temples in Thailand, shoes must... More

here is an oases for the erratic mind of travelers, a place where wish can be posted and taken in account by the spirit of time and space, so tolerant that you don't get upset for the proximity of the superhighway

The base of the Chedi is a rectangular shape base with 7 spires on the top. The Chedi is also house a main Buddha... More

There is no Taxi, Song Tiao and Tuk Tuk nearby. I walk 15 minute to Maya Shopping Center in order to get a Song Tiao back to my Hotel in Old... More

What a wonderful sensation a visit (or repeat visit) to Wat Jed Yod afford! It is akin to walking back in time several centuries, and beholding the exquisitely sculpted Buddhas (especially those that are still intact) is an experience not to be missed by those seeking remnants of traditional civilisation! It is all located within a small historical park which... More
