  • Has many beautiful structures. The hall with numerous Buddha statues was especially stunning. Photography is totally allowed and you can go snap snap as this place offers unending opportunities with its beautiful architecture. Don't forget to visit the lake towards the back of the compound. You can even feed the fish there. Cool place to hang out. The top of one of the temples also has the view of the Big Buddha.

  • Another very beautiful place. Be careful the area is often wet from rain. Easy to slip.

  • The most beautiful temple I've ever been to. The buildings are so detailed. Also, don't waste your money at Patong Beach or Bangla Road. You can purchase clothes or other goodies here way cheaper. I wish I didn't spend 400 baht on coin bags when I could've purchased them here for 100 baht.

  • This is worth a visit. It's entertaining to see the cats and dogs wondering freely through the temples, architecture is fascinating as well

  • Was extremely interesting to see the practices of those at the temple. The atmosphere was pleasant and those there had auras of respect for foreign visitors.
