A lot of people would compare this with the famous White Temple in Chiang Rai. The color is similar, but it is totally different in architecture The staircase that leads to the main building is simple awesome as backdrop... More

This small temple is located not far away from Vogue Department Store. Its entrance is on another road, opposite from the weekend night market. There is a guesthouse next to this Wat’s entrance. There are stairs and dragon's sculpture leading you up to the Wat located on the hill. The interior of the Wat is beautiful. We felt peaceful once... More

Look new and well keep, very clean. We went on the first day of songkran, thought there will be a prayer or something but it's seem a bit quiet. But it's a nice visit, not so big. Only need 15 - 20 mins of your time.

This temple is just a short walk from the Vogue Shopping Center and is so cool considering it's all white! There are lots of stray dogs floating around though which is fine if you don't mind dogs! Just make sure you're suitably dressed!!

Visited here this evening as it is only a 6 minute walk from my Hostel. Very small Wat compared to others that I've visited recently but beautiful all the same. There are some pieces of writing outside of the Wat discussing the history I believe but this is only in Thai so could not be sure what it said. Also... More

This temple is free to visit. It sits up a hill and there is a beautiful staircase with dragons. There is a nice view of the city at the top.

Small temple in the town with beautiful architecture. Great place to sit and relax and pay respect to the Buddha.

I do get a bit "templed-out" sometimes when I'm travelling, let's face it, you've seen one temple and you've seen the blueprint for all the others! But there was something about this one that really got me.....take a visit and a mooch around the place. Visit via the steps on the road where Vogue dept store is, it's a much... More

Visited this temple just be shopping at the weekend night market at Krabi Town. Our purpose was for shopping but never knew there was a temple nearby. We climbed up the stairs to top and took great photos. You should visit this temple just before your shopping. The night market is right across the temple.
