  • About two hours north of Khon Kaen, you'll find one of Thailand's hidden gems in the middle of nowhere (although Ratchasima is not far). Have have been to temples all over the country to include the Blue and White Temples, Temple of Truth, Silver temples of Chang Mai. I have to say, this was worth the trip. It reminds me of the Blue Temple as far as art and design. I loved it! There is so much going on in the murals and sculptures that adorn the outside of the temple; there are Hindu, Buddhist, and possibly more references. The basement looks like you could have a rave party, while the rest is like a museum on the floors above. The giant Naga statues at front are amazing! I've wanted to go here for years, and am glad I finally made the trip.
  • Simply amazing. There are many feasts for the eyes to enjoy. It is a very surreal temple. Allow plenty of time to take in all the sights. If you want to take lots of photos, then earlier in the day may be better so that you are not shooting into the sun.
