This was a unique temple that we passed while transporting from Sukhothai area to Chiang Rai. Open to the public for viewing, no fee. Worth walking around the grounds and taking photos of the unique architecture.

Amazing reclining buddha in front of very ornate but pretty temple. There are quite a few symbols that relate to Burmes buddhism. The coloured glass work is pretty and the wall paintings are interesting. Very peaceful location.

Many people see and pass this Wat, easily identified by the huge reclining Buddha from the road but it is worth taking the road up the hill to look further. The courtyard of the Wat is very nicely laid out as are the building outside....More

If you go to this site, look at the huge reclining Buddha by all means, but please walk up the right side and then turn left into the temple. Tranquility at its best. We were the only ones in the compound and it was so...More
