We were actually looking for a short cut through to The Royal Palace. We paid 20 baht to wander around. There are some ruins, as well as a working temple. It was more impressive than anticipated and well worth a 15 minute wander.

If you need some luck in whatever, just spend a few baht and you'll be fine in love, work etc. This Wat is more quiet as some others. It has a calm atmosphere.
