I spent half an hour wandering around the large temple grounds, I liked the stone pathways and the building architecture, also most signs are in English. There is a small museum housing some basic pottery and religious artifacts, the main temple was locked up. Located here.. 7.194519, 100.591683

i visit this place in 2007 as interested by description in guidebook. this temple can trace back since hundred years ago. there's the site that show painting of thai hermit peform yoga.
