Huge!

This is the largest and most beautiful temple, in my opinion, that we visited in Thailand during our two month stay. We visited during the week and practically had the place to ourselves. This is not a tourist destination (that I’m aware of) so there weren’t crowds of people (like at the White Temple in Chiang Rai, for example). It is ’off the beaten path’, but it certainly deserves a visit.

Quite unlike any other wat I’ve visited throughout Thailand

This is a huge modern temple which my partner took me to see when were were staying in Sukhothai (about an hour’s drive away). There are many buildings with different designs, and I would love to know more about its designer, purpose and funding, etc., but so far not been able to discover anything informative in English. It is quite unlike any other wat I’ve visited throughout Thailand.

It’s mighty impressive in scale,and some of it is truly beautiful (I’m commenting as a non-religious person, and obviously there is deeper meaning to it all if you are Buddhist). It is well worth visiting when exploring this part of Thailand.

My only gripe really is that having put so much thought and effort into design, and having spent what must have been a huge amount of money on the buildings, the grandeur and beauty of it all is rather spoiled by the ubiquitous wires hanging everywhere (why not put them below ground), cars parked within the precinct, and large "advertising" signs (for want of a better word): all of this detracts from the beauty and the potential tranquility.
