Nice and beautiful temple. The golden leaves are peeling of the many Budda statues here. You can donate some money to help put some more golden leaves on the statues.

This is one of the oldest temple in Haytai still standing and is always on the rebuilding side. Many devotees will go and pray and donate for the rebuilding of this temple. Nothing much to see as only devotees will patronise.

This sleeping buhda is located in the city centre. There are 2 sleeping buhda in Hat Yai and this is the older and smaller version. There is a new bigger sleeping buhda at songkla as well which is an hour drive away from city area.

Reach the temple at 12pm and no tourists at all. The temple is not well maintain. Can see a lot of bird poop on the Buddha. Nothing much there. Advice to skip this attraction Only 3km away from city center.
