  • Truly thought this was the best site by far we have visited thus far! Not too crowded very interesting lots of history. Did you know that the Greeks are the ones that actually created the first Buddha...  more »
  • Not so big but really something you have to see in Thailand! Remember to dress properly and bring money for the entrance ticket.  more »
  • The Temple in a huge variety of buildings and statues. Recumbent buddha really big. Shoes be excluded from that place out. The price was not bad, 100 Baht/nose. The amount of work in hand. Although almost one could say, that when you have been together in the temple, you know what someone else has.
