Most visited by locals, this is the main temple in the city. The main part has 5 Buddha statues in gold which is pretty impressive. The walls the temple has many murals too. Behind the temple is this white old khmer pagoda style structure.

Amazing temple and kind people. Amazing crypt at the back showing Buddhas. A must see. We took our 9 and 6 year old and thought it was good. We also bought water animals to release into Phetchaburi river.

Although we could see this fascinating place from in town, we were unable to visit as the cable car was broken. We were very disappointed as we had read about and could only see tantalising bits from a distance

Beautiful shining white temple, in the centre of town, in the typical Khmer style. Remarkable, though a little damaged, wall paintings, splendid stucco works. Great collection of Buddha statues.
