Lovely.

Busy, but absolutely beautiful. The building's unique and pristine upkeep rivals that of the Buddha casting. Worth a visit for sure, and no entrance fee!

The story itself said enough about how important this place and the Buddha image means to the city. The interior and design give you the impression of ancient arts. Lord Buddha relics also lying here.

Whilst I wouldn't go out of my way to visit Phitsanulok, and more specifically this temple it is one of the most beautiful buddhas I have seen after 3 years in Thailand. The temple grounds are lovely and are very popular with locals,deservedly so.

Thai people come here to make their mind clearer from sobbing or wish for the good luck. Inside of the temple is gorgeous and stunning. Good place to see Thai architecture

This temple lays near the river, ha a beautiful garden with a daily market where you can buy traditional clothes and dried food, some handcrafted items too. Cheap prices and good quality products. Inside of the temple there's one of the most beautiful Buddha statue of Thailand. You can respectfully bring in flowers to be offered.

Many people visit this temple, tourists and locals. There are many market stalls here also. The Buddha is beautiful and there are plenty of opportunities for photos.
