“Quiet & beautiful place”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Very nice place, quiet, small and beautiful. It is close to Wat Chedi Luang, so if you go to this famous place, do not miss Wat Pan Tao!

“a lovely”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This is a lovely Wat to visit. It's interesting with depth and plenty of peaceful atmosphere inside and out. Looks smaller than some but much nicer for it. Worth a visit, especially if you are close by in the Tamarind Village hotel.

As in all Wats because careful not to be befriended by a supposed guide who start selling or offering you other things. They do warn you about this. It didn't happen at this Wat but did happen at another one, he wouldn't stop talking - walk away quickly.

“Real deal”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Here you will feel the real spirit of a praying site. Small and charming. Beautiful colors. Far from plastic. It's with in the central part of the town in your walking track and right by the night bazaar bringing the street alive in the evening.
