While tourist numbers are still low, now's the perfect opportunity to fully appreciate the astonishing craftsmanship of this entire complex of very different temples. Of particular interest as a photo op, the extraordinarily decorated sculptures standing watch outside each stood out beautifully under a perfectly blue sky. Great time to visit!

I had a friend suggest this Wat to me for an interesting visit. He described it as a meeting of Buddha and Dr. Seuss and that was a completely accurate description. The intricate detail of the whimsical features are a delight to the senses. It is a large complex that is still under construction - I look forward to another visit when I am back in Thailand.

Big complex of temples and many tourists. It was hot 🥵 day, we are on the way from elephant 🐘 park and guide offer it as extra. Place is huge with many temples, in 30 degrees whole place was warm up like oven even higher as floor for area is made by stones.

This temple is beautiful but more fancy than classy pure temple. Many tourists but temple is huge enough to don't feel uncomfortable. Seems they're still have many projects inside and expand more buildings.

Wat Ban Den is a large and still-growing temple-monastery complex with a series of wihanrs (worship halls) and chedis (stupas) seemingly based on the Chinese zodiac. The buildings are impressive and the imagery is of high quality, there is a spiritual atmosphere in the wiharns. There is no real sense of history of heritage, however, this is a new complex with clear ambitions to attract visitors and tourists in large numbers, so if you want something of the Lanna temple heritage you need to look elsewhere in the area (there are plenty of opportunities for that).
