The temple is neither unique nor significant in any way, but being adjacent to the archaeological park entrance it is an interesting change from the ruins. It is an active place of worship, but visitors are welcome, it is a goodquiet place to cool off while seeing the huge golden buddha and some (often rather ghastly) other relics.

This temple contains a massive Buddha which really is well worth seeing. There is no entry fee and it is next to the Wat Mahathat (the one with the stone buddha head in tree). Makes a nice break from the searing heat outside.

When you have been to the Grand Palace and have seen the Emerald Buddha, or if you have been to Wat Traimit and have seen the Golden Buddha, this would be a little bit boring. As such, it has a good side; there are not many tourists that come here so it's relatively peaceful. It's also free. ☺️ With that... More

It is free entrance. We did not go inside, but it looks lovely from the outside. It is just next to the Wat Phra Si Sanphet.

Went here with my wife, who is a budhist. She was interrested in the temple and spend some time inside the temple, and I tought it was nice too from the outside.

There are loads of temples like this in thailand, so you might miss it thinking it's just another normal temple. Indeed from outside, it looks rather normal. What makes it sp special is the buddha inside, please do remember to take a look at the history photos, this buddha survives the war!

It's written on the walls on how the place was build. Take time to read them and surely you will appreciate the place even more. Not just this one but every place/temple you go to in Thailand as their culture is very rich and interesting.
