“Beautiful Wat”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

The beautifully-built temple was worth a visit. There were so many statues inside. Outside, the shops seemed a little too much.

“Quite unique”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

An interesting temple in two parts - one up on the hill commemorating a famous monk who passed away a few years ago, and another about 1km away on the lake edge with a tall gold chedi.

You should do both parts to get a sense of the scale of the place. A combination of Thai and Burmese styles - well, probably Mon rather than true Burmese.

The chedi part has a row of stalls selling some standard trinkets et, but the one owned by a tall, thin guy with heaps of rings on his fingers has nice scarves at 100 Baht each!

“beautiful temple and remarkable architecture”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Highly recommended to visit this temple. The architecture is unique. The style is much different from the temple in Bangkok. Personally, I feel the architecture style quite similar to the Burmese style. In the chapel, there is a status of Luangpho Ajahn Tala Uttama. He was originally a Burmese and later fled to Thailand and became one of Thailand's most admired person.

I love every detail of this temple. It was delicately built. It is worth to spend time walking around the temple.

“The talent of Thai Architecture”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

Me and my friend went there in Songkran festival, that day we went there the place was full of both Thai and Mon people. Mon ladies dressed beautifully with their national dress, nice color, nice lace, and nice hair.

Normally after people pffering rice for Buddhist monk at 6 am they go back to cook at their home and bring food to the temple for the monks to eat and for the villagers to eat at Rong-Tan. (charity place that provide food for everyone, also the sweet and snacks!)


We have seen many girls carried food tray on their head, walking or riding motorbike to the temple, such a nice harmony of the villagers that you should come and see by yourself. Also the temple itself is beautiful enough for sight-seeing. And by the time I write this review, another new temple is being construct, so if you go visit there don't forget to upload a photo of the new building!
