  • Tasteful concrete reinforcing. Recommend visiting during a pandemic and on a weekday when there are not many visitors.
  • Beautiful authentic ancient temple covered by banyan tree built in Ayutthaya period. Story has it that this was the site where King Taksin trained army to win the war with Burmese whom also burnt the original Buddha statue to melt the real gold on it. When we visited, we were given pcs of gold foil to put on the statue.
