  • Worth visiting if stopping over in Korat. I found this attraction enjoyable but a little strange. On one part of the site you have some beautiful temple buildings and statues. 20 metres away you have ...  more »
  • Wat Sala Loi Temple, another that has a pair of historic city centre where people come to worship continued. With a long history of art and design. As another measure, one should not miss a visit Korat.

  • What Sala Loi is a temple that serves as a place where people not only pray but it is also a place where families and couples come together to spend a few hours. The beautiful garden with a waterfall, for example, is a lovely place to sit and where loved ones numerous selfies. You can eat and drink coffee. But also a financial donation to save a few cows to butcher or contribute to new roof tiles for the temple. It is a lively place with little or no foreigners. A must if you're in Korat.

  • Wat Salaloi. Location: on the bank of Lam Takhong River, about 400m off the side – road of highway 224. GPS Coordinates (WGS84): N 14.980582, E 102.116713 The highlight of the “Temple of the Floating Pavilions” is a large wihaan designed in a contemporary Thai style with sharply slanting roofs and walls that are supposed to create the feel of a ship riding the waves. Adorning the outer walls, ceramic tiles from Dan Kwian display scenes from the life of the Buddha. In 1973 the Siam Architects Society awarded the wihaan as the best avant-garde religious building of the year. Inside the wihaan, a roughly five-metre-tall white standing Buddha image is depicted wearing a cape with two hands raised in the holding back the ocean posture. The surrounding walls narrow towards the back of the hall, forming a triangular frame around the Buddha. A small pond topped by pavilions and elevated footpaths helps Wat Sala Loi earn its name behind the wihaan. The grounds also feature a large concrete shrine room housing an image of Ya Mo placed high above the ground. The story behind the temple: The temple was built in 1827 by Thao Suranaree and her husband. The Heroine of Korat, after winning the battle. She floated a small offering along the Lamtaklong (Korat) river and made her wish that she would build the Bhuddist temple at the site where the floating vessel landed. That is why the name of this temple was given, meaning "Floating Sala" The relics of Thao Suranaree was also installed at this temple.
  • At " WAT SALA LOI " has a shrine that contain the bones ash of THAO SURANAREE ( YA MO ) , spacious area with a hugh manmade waterfall and shady water garden , not too far from "YAMO monument" ( KORAT ' s landmark )
  • Small fine temple having the shape of a boat.
