This temple provides a good perspective on early Bhuddist temples in the area. It doesn't take too long to look around but is worth a visit.

This is not a place that you are going to spend a lot of time, but it is worth a visit. Especially if you have a guide you can give you the history and tell you the stories behind it.

Near town center, in a pretty and well maitained park, it is one of the best sites in this lovely and modest town. The old stupa is in an excellent condition, serene, quiet, inviting. Worth a visit and worth the 50 baht entrance ticket.

Only one main structure in the old temple. However, you can see the most proportional structure, the most delicate looking, not bulky looking like the new era stoops.

This is history, preservation, beauty and tranquility. Unusual for its age, just beyond the city walls, peaceful and worth a few minutes of reflection and meditation on the past linked to the present.
