Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had some time prior to my flight and found this temple on Google maps, walking distance from my hotel (Sunee Tower Hotel). This temple exceeded my expectations. It looks like it may be been built relatively recently. The architecture is a blend of western and Thai elements, with a pyramid/obelisk type central tower feature. The mail hall, unlike most Thai temples, with their steep roof angles, has a rounded arch section. The most interesting feature to me were these two serpent like dragons sculptures at the entrance, that tower over the gate. There were also yellow boat like sculptures full of icons by the main Viharn. A tip: take shoes that are easy to slip on and off as the building and parts of the grounds require you to remove your shoes.

If you’re interested in unique architecture and Buddhist temples this is worth a one hour visit to admire the various structures on the temple grounds. The 1956 tower ( chedi) is famous but I was impressed more with the interior of the assembly hall ( Viharn). The style is a mix of modern and “European” architecture with its exterior columns, huge circular glass windows and the decorative, painted ceilings with arches that reminded me of the historical cathedrals in Europe. -And the gold statues of Buddha was impressive.

This temple was even more impressive than I had expected from the positive reviews. The 56-meter high pyramid pagoda is white and gold inside and out. The temple is not new, having been built in the 1950s, but is quite beautiful and interesting in design. There are huge naga statues alongside which will appeal to the Instagram crowd. The temple is also well-known for its wax carvers that prepare floats for the annual Candle Festival and you can see some of the wax craftsmen at work near the temple.

This is probably one of the most beautiful temples and certainly one of the biggest in Ubon Ratchathani. There are many temples in Ubon but this one is absolutely magnificent in every way. From the shining gold tower and ornaments that glisten in the sun down to the huge serpents and horses that adorn the place. We were lucky on the day of our visit that the Governor of Ubon Province came to visit the Temple, pay his respects and also to watch some lovely Isaan dancer girls perform their graceful ritual.
The Temple is set in lovely grounds and there is parking space outside in the road as well as the grounds.
This is a very religious place for all visitors whether Thai Buddhists or those from another country and it's important to respect the many shrines that are here. Also shoes need to be taken off and left outside when actually going inside the Temple itself, again as a mark of respect. It is okay to take photographs though. The horses and dragons/serpents I believe are made from some kind of wax- they are amazing - although I can't be certain of that fact. Thai people believe that the Dragon and indeed praying to Buddha brings, good health, healing and even good luck for the future. There are monks who look after the place and any donations given by Thai People or Tourists- whether it be by buying flowers or candles or incense - all go to the upkeep of the place. I think this probably applies to many Buddhist Temples in Thailand.
In conclusion- if you want to see a very special Temple in Isaan area- this certainly not one to miss out on.

We found the complex’s geometric layout, incorporated Thai designs and the well-maintained grounds all definite reasons to visit. Our recognition and respect to the local supporters and patrons of this wat. We spent easily over an hour walking all parts of the complex site.

Really amazing sight
Well worth the effort to visit.

One of the sure must visit if in this town

It can be a little noisy as there are groups playing music and dancing. To give thanks for wishes granted.

Tale it all in as that is the practise for this temple.

Beautiful and amazing

This is one of the most famous temple in Ubon as they are known to produce the wax statues used in a parade. During my visit, there was a temple festival showcasing the wax statues.

The wax statues were impressive as there were huge and filled with very
Intricate details.
