Have driven by many times. Never went into look. Took an hour last weekend and took on the sites. Two main buildings, a museum and a large stupa. Museum is three floors old pictures, old money, some skeletons (bit creepy). Does not have the amusement park feel that some temples have. The stupa is like the pictures. Worth a few... More

A hot wat with gleaming stupa. There is an assortment of surrounding buildings and food vendors were there as well. Worth a look if you are passing by.

Deeply revered and respected space 10kms from Ubon. The stupa is a golden tribute to the teachings of an incredibly monk.

The quiet and serenity of the surrounding created the temple a sacred place to visit. Inside the Museum, there are belonging of Luangpor Char. This is a place worth the visit.

I cycled here from the city, and was so glad I did. I'm not a pagoda fan particularly and I'm embarrassed to admit that much of what the other reviewers say about the religious aspects went completely over my head. However, I simply appreciated the serene location, the calm and cooling woodland. It almost made me want to become a... More

Wonderful surroundings to go for a quiet stroll between the forest monks, the temple is,in my eyes, a shrine for the late Arjahn Chah who is one of the great monks of Thailand.

Ubon is a bit boring but if your here this Wat is a must see. Very well kept gardens and surrounds and overall a lovely place to wander around. There was hardly any people there and I seemed free to move around and check out the Wat at my leisure. No one trying to sell you anything and no tourist... More

Nothing real exciting but if you have some extra time you may want to visit this temple. Plan on less than an hour to see it all.
