This is a nice temple and definitely worth a visit if you are in Phitsanulok. We were there on a Sunday, and there was a market within the temple area. Consequently it was pretty crowded.

Although this wasn't included on our tour, we spent about 20 minutes early one morning. It is a very beautiful temple.

Lovely temple surrounded by a great market. Highlight of the temple was the fruit bats that were in the trees and flying during the day. This was a very unusual sight

Go early to avoid the crowds Worth visiting and a very nice place with loads od items for sale. You can take photos inside but only sitting down which is not a problem. Certainly worth looking at if you are in the area.

A beautiful place. I normally come once a year to pay my respect. Haven't been back since 2012. A lot more worshippers and tourists but the management of the facilities is much better than what it was.
