This pagoda is really lovely and worth a visit
Nov 2019
We stopped at this pagoda during bike tour and thought is was very lovely. Some very cool statues and designs all over the grounds as well as neat flowers. There are also some very fancy shrines around the grounds.

A very quiet and and peaceful spot to stop in and relax.

Be sure to notice the pagoda outside and monuments in the surrounding cemetery.

Beautiful but tired looking pagoda

It is a magnificent building in the centre of Battambang but it is showing signs of wear and tear. If you go at dusk it does illuminate quite beautifully in the evening sun.

Excellent Hindu Renditions

The art that depicts the Hindu Epic Ramayana in colour is very beautiful and the Monasteries are very pleasant and serene with utmost discipline and upkeep on the part of the monks.

The most eye-catching pagoda in town
Jan 2019 • Solo
Spent a short time to visit Whit Elephant Pagoda which is located behind the provincial museum of Battambang where the pagoda is truly amazing and beautiful. Here is so calm in personality, at the right entrance there is Preah Sihanouk Raja Buddhist University, Battambang Branch which publicly open for local university students and teachers.
Just close the courtyard of Pagoda there is a provincial museum that is available for tourists to explore the impressive statues, mythology and Buddhism, running with ancient cave information, before you begin your journey to visit ruins temples in Battambang provinces. Highly recommend!!!!

We were getting to know Battambang and wandered past this place. Went in the grounds, but the temple was locked. Interesting statues outside.

Had a great city tour guide that explained to me the meaning of the various different statues in the grounds.
Temple was locked but entrance to the grounds is free.
