  • This place is the best place to donate coffins and pray to get want you wanted. When I get stuck of work, I always go there donate and pray. Then I get what I wanted within a week. 
  • Small but nice temple. I enjoyed the many cats lying around. Recently, they have started charging foreigners to go up to the actual temple, which is a disgusting policy but in this case I think it was only 20 baht or so.
