Happened to stumble across this fully functional Buddhist Temple whilst walking down Fa Ngun Quay. Quite compact but peaceful and serene with interesting and colourful architecture and murials / paintings. Located opposite the Night Market. Free entry and well worth a visit if walking by.

One of the many temples in the area, Wat Chan is a beautiful place to visit and wander around. The beauty of each of the many temples in the few blocks here is they are all individually beautiful, and feature great art.
