Peaceful retreat
Mar 2021
Located only 10kms south of Ubon Ratchathani I took a meter taxi there. You need your walking shoes to get around this temple as it is spread out over a few acres. The surrounding forest trees provide a lot of shade which is a plus. There is nothing over the top or spectacular, more of a place offering meditation and reflection. Close to town so worth visiting for a few hours to see a different type of temple complex. I organised a lady from a nearby cafe to book a taxi for me back to town.

Ajahn Chah’s temple
Jun 2018 • Solo
Visited the museum and took a walk in the forest. Nice walking paths and guests are free to walk around. Forest tradition temples are generally more low key than Thai village temples that have a lot of gilded statues and ornaments everywhere. Wat Pah Pong is a must for disciples of Ajahn Chah, or people who want to learn more about him.

Mindfulness!

Situated on the outskirt of the city, the temple is peaceful and inspirational. If you want to track the ex-great monk, Ajarn Chah, of this temple, you will not feel disappointed. Using a taxi may be a good idea to get there since there is no regular bus taking us to that place. I would recommend anyone searching for a place for your future mediation practice go and see and you may get some good inspiration for your future movement!

Clean and peaceful saw many monks. No scabby soi dogs or anything on sale, not even flowers and only one donation box. Nice change from the nonsense at most wats. Worth a visit.

OK. No monks
Feb 2017 • Couples
Have driven by many times. Never went into look. Took an hour last weekend and took on the sites. Two main buildings, a museum and a large stupa. Museum is three floors old pictures, old money, some skeletons (bit creepy). Does not have the amusement park feel that some temples have.
The stupa is like the pictures. Worth a few camera clicks.
The whole time I was there only saw a monk or any other staff was when I took a wrong turn and went through their housing area. Remarkably few visitors (even locals) for a 3 day weekend. Good for a hour but not much more.

A hot wat with gleaming stupa. There is an assortment of surrounding buildings and food vendors were there as well. Worth a look if you are passing by.
