Well a temple is a temple if you want to pray but if you are going to see the architecture etc then this is a place that you should go to spend some time outside in this pleasant small city. There are a couple of good restaurants opposite and you can always walk around to the city centre from here.

I like the architecture, because seems quite different from the temples in Bangkok. It is beautiful, but even more beautiful at night with all the lightings

Awe inspiring architecture, a must see!!! The trip we took there and the blessings we received still reverberate in our bodies. Please dress respectfully and kneel before buddha images and monks.

Grounds were beautiful. Inside there was a monk available while we were visiting. Coincidentally when we were leaving we saw a new bride ( in western bridal atire) having her picture taken in front of this wat

I visited this temple while walking along the Sunday markets. Surprisingly it wasn't as busy as I thought it would be. Seeing it late in the afternoon was great for photographing as the sun was low and shining on the gold - absolutely brilliant! The other advantage of the Sunday was seeing a service as many Thais visit temples on Sundays. Just standing from the entrance was majestic seeing the silver Buddha and the standing Buddha at the alter - right hand up means Peace to the World. The pillars inside are of gold and black. Stunning! The elephants along the edge of the Pagoda is very interesting. It's definitely a must see!
