Nice but nothing special compared to other temples that have been to in Thailand. It's quite small actually.

This was just a few meters from where we were staying aqnd visited one very morning. It was impressive. Very peaceful spiritual place. Remember to wear decent clothes and take off your shoes before entering the temple.For 10 baht you can feed the cat fishes in the pond from the local made vending machine. My children loved it !

We happened upon this place after leaving the Big Buddha Temple… you can't miss the bright colors from the main road! All the temples are on a lake, which gives the whole place a very peaceful vibe. It felt much less touristy than other temple areas we visited. There are lots of beautiful temples and statues to see… you can spend a good amount of time walking around! Definitely recommend!
