Huge and Beautiful!
Aug 2020
The stupa is huge and beautiful. We spent about one hour at the temple. The stupa is under restoration. The ground level is also nice.

Buddha in motion
Nov 2019
Don't miss an opportunity to take a picture of Buddha in motion, as it's definitely not something common. Buddha is outside of the main building.
What was interesting for me was to see women doing reconstruction of the floor close to the entrance of the temple. Is seems that genders in Thailand are really equal.

impressive structure overlooking the lake
Nov 2019
This huge chedi resembles Bodh Gaya in India and is not too old.
You can walk up on different levels, and it's just peace and quiet.
To get there you need a car, bike or bike taxi.
There's a lot of market stalls selling (Burmese) souvenirs.

Relaxing

Very nice temple that contains artifacts of Buddha. Once you walk up the steps and after you make your offerings, be sure to ring the bells three times apiece. There are some very large and small ones.

Walk towards the back and you will see a spectacular view of the lake. Note this is the same temple that you will see on the shore, if you do the sunken lake temple tour.

Overall a nice temple, with a great view.

Beautiful Burmese style Wat
Sep 2018 • Couples
Wat complements different from those found in Thailand. Its architecture resembles more Burmese. The inner renovation of the temple is finished but the outside part has not yet. The shape of the golden colour temple was construct like the pyramid shape with small buddha statues surround at the structure, really nice to see.

This temple needs maintenance..
Apr 2018 • Friends
We came to see the bodhgaya replica, the main shrine was rather impressive. But other parts of the temple seems rather run down, the place was filled with dust and debris. I think some funds is required to improve, otherwise a really nice temple with multiple shops outside selling crafts goods and local specialties.

Stunning and original
May 2017 • Couples
Most of the renovations are now complete and it really is a stunning chedi that dominates the Sangkhlaburi landscape. The design is not traditional Mon, but it's a brilliant design that resembles an art deco structure with hundreds of different Buddha images in various materials set into the gilded surface. It was constructed with local Mon support and it symbolizes a triumphant assertion of Mon identity amid hostile surroundings.

Being renovated
Nov 2016
The chedi is currently being renovated and you can't really get up close to it. You can walk around it and get some photos but that's about it.
