  • It is a temple located on the way towards the wattschen tone. Has become not so much tourists, and chillin. I think that comes close to the entrance is free, so I'll drop by. Is clean, and is illuminated at night.

  • The temple is the logical continuation of a monumental religious path that winds along the Sakkaline Road, Wat Sen has nothing special that makes an impact, especially if the big Buddha Standing tall 8-10 m lying as a whole within a chapel, I would say that this alone is enough to stop the walk and browse within.

  • As another measure to which I must attend. When arriving in the capital, some monks at this temple has a unique stand with big guys. Don't miss the decisive moment.
