This was one of the most beautiful temples I have ever seen. So peaceful and tranquil. Even though you dont fully understand the culture its still an experience of a lifetime.

This place is stunning. The main temple is closed for renovations but if you walk to the back you can go up dragon stairs into a beautiful temple. It was so quiet and peaceful. Really enjoyed our time here.

You can tour the temple grounds with a sense of calmness, the Temple is very quiet with not many visitors.

A nice break from the madness of patong. A short walk from patong beach. We visited in the morning. Temple was beautiful. We only saw one monk who was meditating so we didn't get to talk to anyone.

A nice small peaceful place. We had a walk from Bangla road - it is reachable within half an hour. For those who do not expect to see something amazing and is a bit curious about local culture.

I am not sure, I've asked taxi driver and he told me it's open to public in the morning but not in the evening, not sure if that's true though.
