There is no information provided the visitor about this Temple, so please don’t have any expectations of learning anything about it from a visit. That said, it is about as “must-see” in Betong as anything (and to be frank, there are no must-sees in Betong)....More

If you are visiting Betong but do not visit this temple, I don't think you have visited this town. It is significantly large temple at this Southern Thailand and it has the nicest view if you climb until the top. Pretty quiet during normal days....More

It's not just one of the many Buddha statues in Thailand. It's a great place to find some peace in the later afternoon to just before sunset when the gate closes. I've been once locked in and had to climb over the fence out. So...More

This is one of the landmark in the predominantly Buddhist Thailand. A tranquil place with a little park connected. Quite a photogenic area but offer nothing much for visitors unless you are here to pray or meditate.
