Very peaceful & clean grounds, the Monks were busy painting & cleaning. A lot of silver accents & there was a man on the grounds making silver pieces, possibly to replace some. Worth a look if you're in the area.

This smaller temple is easy to walk past, but the grounds are very serene and the main hall worth a look. If you are making your way down Tha Phae road stop in.

This temple has one of the more impressive chedi with square three layered base with bell shaped top half and gold pinnacle. Also interesting is the entrance to the viharn which together with the gable end is highly decorated. There is also a good library...More
