This is an atmospheric old temple with a lot to see. When we were there, a stray and friendly dog oddly guided us by leading and following us to the different buildings and waited patiently while we looked at each part. We loved this temple.

Old wooden temple buildings, 300-year old murals, a big pond with a small, wooden library building for the holy books, feeding the fish, all-in-all an interesting temple complex to visit. A bilingual brochure is available for free.

This was one of the larger Wats and was quite impressive but unfortunately many parts were closed off. Not being very adventourous we declined to open any of the closed doors
