Its advised as a landmark or tourist place but actually is just a temple. Important for the locals and buddhists coming in but nothing significant in terms of tourists.

We walked by and we went in. There was just 1 other tourist. The young monk told us to go upstairs so see more of the city and the temple.

This was my favorite temple in PP. It has a large complex with monks and very interesting statues. It is right in front of the river.

Best experience was going in to the inner temple (they locked up a door), and we climbed in to this neon lighted buddha - and got blessed. Kids liked it! We though it was fine. Dont need a lot of time, but worthwhile going into.

A Buddhist temple compound, still functioning as a monastery. Feel free to walk around, take lots of photos, could be done in about 1 hour. No charge, but you could leave money at various locations near the statues.
