Unspectacular temple
Feb 2019 • Couples
The temple itself is rather underwhelming, it’s quite basic, unpretentious and quite austere but from what I’ve heard about the important monk who used to live here my guess is that’s what he intended it to be, apparently he lived his life as a true Buddhist monk scorning wealth and donating much of his money to the benefit of local people which sort of makes me wonder why they are building the biggest, most over the top chedi I’ve ever seen, it will be spectacular and beautiful to look at but it seems to fly the in face of what he believed. The temple is worth a visit but don’t expect a long visit, there’s not much here, yet...

Temple of the famous monk
Aug 2018 • Family
A famous monk temple, but he had past away. There are history about how he helped with the economic and other stuff. A quiet place to walk in the forest with some animals to look at such as squirrels, hens, chickens, birds, peacock.

A must for people interested in eco-budhisme
Nov 2017 • Couples
This temple is a great visit for anybody interested in buddhist history. It is an important Wat for Thai/Isaan people. Ajahn Maha Bua Ñāṇasampaṇṇo (1913–2011), known as Luangta, teacher of the Thai Forest Tradition of Theravada Buddhism, lived here for much of his 77 years as monk. His teaching has spread all over the world.
If you are interested in a relaxed day of buddhist history, including birds and squirrels, this is the place.

Very large property with plenty of parking. Home of one of the most revered monks (died in 2012). Honored place in Buddhist culture.

Wat Pa Ban Tat

A very famous temple to the Thai people. If you're into temples and Buddhist history it is worth a trip. It's very helpful to go along with a Thai person who can explain the history and meaning of the temple to them. It's also very famous among Foreigners and Foreign men are serving as monks at this temple. The grounds are beautiful and well kept by the monks in service.
The current Trip Advisor location is not up to date (as of Jan. 19, 17) but Google maps is accurate if you're coming by car the English signs for the temple are also confusing best to follow the Thai signs (if you can read it) or follow Google maps.

- temple is surrounded by forest, it's cool even when the weather is too hot, you can see some wild birds, chicken etc.
- it's really quite and peaceful
- good for short visit and also good for long visit to do some meditation
- not too far from town about 40 mins drive
- see local life, people offering food to monk in early morning (not sure what time... around 5 - 7 am?)
- very popular to local
