Located 9kms east of Khon Kaen I took a taxi which was around 140 baht each way. Very well planned out. Beautiful features throughout. Well worth a visit.

An absolute delight - particularly for photographers
Feb 2020
A beautiful Thai temple and grounds about 25 minutes drive from the center of Khon Kaen.

I was amazed to hear it was a twelve-year-old temple as it looks so well-preserved with beautiful windows, fabulous carvings and a rare black Buddha.

When I researched it, on the internet, it seems that it was recently renovated so that would explain why it looks so nice and new. In this condition it is a photographer's delight - and I would love to return and photograph it at sunrise and sunset.

There are additional buildings and more statuary around the temple, including an intriguing bridge, large lake and smaller temple .

When leaving Wat Thung Setthi there's a lovely coffee house just outside the entrance. Great service here, and some animals.

Highly recommended.

Temple

This is quite a spectacular Temple and well worth the visit, in a very rural setting and surrounded by rice paddy’s.
The large lake contains some massive fish and fish food is available to purchase and feed the fish.

Black Buddha

Easy drive from KK and lovely place to spend an afternoon. The lotus pond was stunning as was the overall setting. Apparently black buddhas are very uncommon so it was interesting to see this one

What an Incredible display of Architecture and Buddhism
Jul 2019
This is a must see. There is such a varied amount of architecture and multiple buildings to explore and enjoy. I was very impressed by everything I experienced here. The pictures really do not do this place justice. The best part is that it is rarely traveled by foreigners so you will be one of few that get to experience it. Highly recommended

Temple visit

A lovely place to visit. The wat is beautiful and it is so peaceful. You can even visit hell, or at least the Buddhist representation of it on another part of the site
