It has been said that "once you see one Buddhist temple, you have seen them all". However, this temple is more extravagant than most and contains more buildings and elements than the average neighborhood temple. The buildings are elaborate and very well maintained. The main temple houses the emerald Buddha. An exhibition hall contains many Buddhist artifacts. Signs are generally printed in both Thai and English - helpful for the foreign tourist. The grounds are small and nicely landscaped. The temple is conveniently located near the center of the city across the street from the Overbrook Hospital and one block from the city's main fresh market area. There is no admission charge.
