  • Victories in the war with Thailand, is known as a temple erected. This time, their stay at the accommodation limit being directly in front of the Temple in the morning or between walking and in section. The temple was the daughter in elementary school. The appearance of the young students in an inquiry the cutest. The temple itself is compact, so the Inn at night but not so much in advance of the night view of the sights are beautiful.

  • I lived the bright color paint. I enjoyed the short walk thru the grounds. The doors were closed. Architecture beautiful.
  • Nice decadent wat with children school
  • It's such a shame that they've taken the lovely little courtyard and gravel path that used to run between the school and the temple and paved it over with 20 tonnes of ugly grey concrete. Feel sad for the kids and the monks every time I walk through here now.
  • It is closed. You may just take a look outside.
  • Just nice place for the short walk visit
