If you are like me and know nothing about Wats, you should definitely check this one out. While I am sure Thai-style Wats differ from each other in many important ways, I am too ignorant to notice most of these differences. This Wat is Burmese-style and even someone with no training in architecture, art or Buddhism can easily appreciate the... More
