    Free big temple. Saccharin in through the facing buildings are relatively new and clean. Was a building containing the drum and containing a ship building. Golden stupa remained in the impression.

    Main street located along the temple. No one did tourists could admire the Temple in a quiet atmosphere. Seiza way to visit local people so Thailand's Kana differs.
