“Beautiful Ancient Temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

This is a lovely, older temple, with a great deal of history attached to it. Its huge chedi towers over the surrounding city, and is the highlight feature of the temple. There are some interesting musuems attached to the temple complex that are also worth viewing.

“Renovated”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013

Be sure to buy shadow puppets at the handicraft market at the temple. They are famous in Nakhon. Newly renovated and lovely inside, with a great museum. It's free so make sure to go.

“Very large temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

The main building has just been renovated so it looks even better now. It takes you quite a while to walk though the whole place. Make sure your camera is charged - quite a few photo opportunities.
