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.

For those wanting to visit for the meal it isnt officially offered until 9 am. There is a dharma talk at 8 am- 9 and you can go early if you want to. There is a shorts alms round at 630 to 7 but it was small and just a token few monks were outside the gate. I raced up there at 6 am on my bike but there was nothing to do or see.You could also hire a taxi, run you about 100 baht or so. You don’t need to be there until 8 am. Beautiful forest and the beginnings of Ajahn Chahs leadeship. Lovely sounds of birds, wild turkeys and jungle. I walked around, visited the museum which is at the entrance, also visited the Chedi and the forest itself. A junior monk was hitting a cat with a broom and had to tell him to stop. Not very inspiring and he was breaking a precept, not unusual though I imagine. Ubon is a busy city and without the monasterys to visit found no reason to be there. I also visited Wat Pah Nanachat, also a wonderful forest with all English speakers. I took the train from Ubon to Bang Wai, 10 minutes and 2 baht, easy. You walk two kilometers to Nanachat. There is an amazing Lotus pond outside Nanachat, very large.

A local friend took me to the museum for Ajahn Chah and we spent quite a bit of time there checking out many of the things in the exhibit, which I found so interesting and was grateful to be there and experience it.

A beautiful monastery! The monastery pays tribute to Ajahn Chah a great teacher of the Thai Forest Tradition. The forest is beautiful and the Stupa and museum/memorial to Ajahn Chah are compelling. There are also walking meditation paths through the trees just outside the Dharma Hall. The sounds of the forest soothe and support relaxation. Day visitors are welcome, but there is no English offered here. (There is a few posters in English in the museum). You can use Google Translate to decipher the signs, but the translations aren't great. Also, there is no formal interaction with the monks. Appropriate dress: WM: long skirt/pants, 3/4 length white shirt (no shoulders bared).
***Note: If you visit for the day, make sure to book a taxi BEFORE you come to take you back to the city and hotel at the end of the day. (Also bring water and snacks) This monastery is far out of town and there are no real services. We tried to use the taxi service suggested (phone # 045-265-99) but they never picked up. Gates to the monastery lock at 6PM and there are no services once the local vendors close down their wares.

Located only 10kms south of Ubon Ratchathani I took a meter taxi there. You need your walking shoes to get around this temple as it is spread out over a few acres. The surrounding forest trees provide a lot of shade which is a plus. There is nothing over the top or spectacular, more of a place offering meditation and reflection. Close to town so worth visiting for a few hours to see a different type of temple complex. I organised a lady from a nearby cafe to book a taxi for me back to town.

Visited the museum and took a walk in the forest. Nice walking paths and guests are free to walk around. Forest tradition temples are generally more low key than Thai village temples that have a lot of gilded statues and ornaments everywhere. Wat Pah Pong is a must for disciples of Ajahn Chah, or people who want to learn more about him.

Situated on the outskirt of the city, the temple is peaceful and inspirational. If you want to track the ex-great monk, Ajarn Chah, of this temple, you will not feel disappointed. Using a taxi may be a good idea to get there since there is no regular bus taking us to that place. I would recommend anyone searching for a place for your future mediation practice go and see and you may get some good inspiration for your future movement!

Clean and peaceful saw many monks. No scabby soi dogs or anything on sale, not even flowers and only one donation box. Nice change from the nonsense at most wats. Worth a visit.
