This was a unique temple that we passed while transporting from Sukhothai area to Chiang Rai. Open to the public for viewing, no fee. Worth walking around the grounds and taking photos of the unique architecture.

Amazing reclining buddha in front of very ornate but pretty temple. There are quite a few symbols that relate to Burmes buddhism. The coloured glass work is pretty and the wall paintings are interesting. Very peaceful location.
