Overall this temple is quite typical and only modest appeal for most travelers. But, the relatively new stupa there is beautiful and has some great paintings inside, and this makes it worth a trip.

Since it's a Buddhist temple, it's really quiet. The Buddha's relic stupa is awesome. Wall paintings is done by Udon Thani's artist.

Interesting temple, with a unique stupa like structure and fine carvings. Many gold replicas ( statues ) of famous monks, in glass enclosures. Climb the stupa ans enjoy a great view of surrounding temple buildings. Avoid Buddha days , better go late afternoon.
