This is a very intricate statute that you can spend a long time looking at it. Plenty of opportunity for photography.

A bit different from another Buddha site plus feeding the catfish is entertaining. Several different sections to walk around plus food and market stalls

The ‘statues’ are falling into disrepair. You can pay to feed fat catfish to pass the time. Not much to see. The Wat itself is quaint with a nice mural.

Very interesting temple area for various religions. The most impressive being the 18 armed goddess of mercy and compassion. There are decking area that allow you to take stunning photographs of the various buildings - and for 15baht you can buy pellets to feed the large fish in the lake. As with all areas you need to be aware of what you need to wear and the paths around the area are uneven We spent around 45 min and then moved on to Big Buddha which was only about 10 min away

Very impressive temples and the surrounding complex. It’s possible to go inside one of the Wats and interesting to see the paintings on the walls and ceiling. We spent about an hour here and could have spent longer looking at the amazingly detailed carvings. Lots of good photo opportunities.
