This is a must visit Wat if you are in Nakhon Si Thammarat. It is a beautiful Wat that was built in the 13th century. The Stupa is now painted in gold and it looks majestic.

This was a very nice temple complex to visit and very busy today. I enjoyed their museum very much, which had some very interesting pieces in it, as well as English descriptions.

Very popular for most Thais, but saw only a few Westerners. Not much information available for anyone other than Thai and no signs in English. The main stupa/chedi was under construction, so not the best for photographers. The smaller chedis, however, were quite nice. Area...More
