Ten minutes drive from city center, this is a very interesting Chinese Shrine where you would have a chance to pay respect to 6 devines, the most people would like to visit and pay respect to may be "Poo-Yaa Shrine" which is believed those who pay respect and make a wish, that wish (only one wish) would come true. I could not remember the name of other 5 monks/devines because it is in chinese name but each would bless you prosperity, health and good luck. There is also a "9 turn Shrine" standing in the Nong Bua pond which connecting walk way that has 9 turns before reaching the pavillion.Our group were there in mid January just a week before Chinese New Year and it was almost full moon. The pavilion and the willow tree together with the moon reflects in the water looked stuning. Plus we had a chance to see the rehearsal of the Dragon parade which will be perform at Nong Prajak every year too. Nice to stroll around at night. (Close at 8 p.m.) Lots of parking space.

One of the most holy places in Udonthani espacially for Thai born Chineses who live in the area and near by provinces. It's first built by an early group of Chinese merchants who moved in and started businesses many years ago.

The Chinese Temple has always been a delight to visit while walking through the adjacent park. But the newly opened Museum attached to the Temple complex is great. A world-class exhibit. You can easily spend an hour with the gardens and underground museum. There is also a lovely cafe on the way out. A good way to get away from the busy Udon Thani street scene.

as my thai partner is buddhist and I am sort of (if you can be) i thought it would be nice to offer thanks for us meeting and being together, so we took a tuk-tuk 10 minutes from our hotel and spent a good half hour saying a prayer at each of the 5 stations planting 5 incense sticks at each. donations are given in exchange for the incense and it was a very reasonable 100 baht. it was also exceedingly hot, and some of the stations were outside with little shelter.

This temple and museum was a lovely find. The Tourist Information Office mentioned it in passing, "oh there is a Chinese Temple here" and pointed it out on the map. Since it is not well known it can be a little difficult to find.
Getting there on foot. It is easily reached from UD Town. Start at MacDonalds at UD Town and walk along Phosi Road and cross the railway tracks. After maybe 200 metres you will see a ceremonial archway on your left. Walk down this road and you come to some nice buildings with pretty gardens on the right hand side. This is the Museum, although it is not well signposted. I simply walked into an area where I saw a pond and a nice lady stopped and explained to me that the buildings were a Museum of the history of the Chinese in this area and it was open and free to visit.
The walls are surrounded by motifs which I assume document the history but they are in Thai. Pretty rock gardens with waterfalls and a fish pool make the complex an inviting place. One room is dedicated to some history of Chinese settlement and the Princess Bajrakitiyabha who works in this area. I didn't quite see the connection but the Princess does good works and is popular.
As you exit this room the long building to your right is the museum proper with an entrance about half way down. I was greeted at the door, asked to sign a visitors book and then a lovely girl showed me around. Her English was not great but she battled on for a while before admitting defeat and letting me read the interpretive panels, which are in Thai and English and I think Chinese. The Museum is on 2 levels and very tastefully put together, it covers the settlement of the Chinese in the area through to modern times.
Well worth a visit. I was not asked for a donation or entrance fee, but gave my guide some money anyway, which was gratefully received.
Once you leave the Museum you can continue through to the temple proper. These are also quaint and feature a large pavilion, I assume for functions and gatherings, a pavilion on the lake reached by a zig zag walkway and several places of worship.
You can extend your trip and walk right around Nong Bua Lake.

The Chinese here had lost their origin, comes to the temple to pray andhold activities. Other thanthese, the essence had been long lost over time.

I was fortunate to visit the temple at the time of Chinese New Year, with a positive festive spirit all about this wonderful place. A little visual oasis in the city. I video logged my experience for my Coffee Chill YouTube channel and I definitely plan to go back again, soon.
