“Not much different from every other temple”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Once you've seen one gold Bhudda you've seen them all. If you're starting to get a bit bored of temples then I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see this. It is however right next to one of the historical parks which are worth seeing (world famous and featured in various films including Kickboxer starring Jean Claude Van Damme), so it wouldn't hurt to drop in whilst you're there.

“Large Buddha But Otherwise Pales In Comparison to Nearby Ruins”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

It can't hurt to stop at this temple; it is, after all, free and right next to Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. That being said, there wasn't much to see here, just a really big Buddha that is just like all the other really big Buddhas at hundreds of other temples all over Thailand.

“Simple, nice temple”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

A simple temple with a huge Buddha idol. This is a fully operational temple so you will have to leave your footwear outside. If you have some time, you can sit here for a breather before you go on to the larger complexes.

“Make a pit stop here.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Well there's nothing much here, just a big sitting buddha inside it. It can be as a pitstop if you are cycling around.

“Not the must.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Not much interesting site but you can make a stop if you have extra time in ayutthaya. The adjoining market is more interesting the temple.
