This temple is slightly busier and sees more locals than the other temples in Phetchaburi. The tall prangs are rather impressive and there is a huge Buddha in the main building.

Said to contain Buddha's ashes. Mmmm! He died two & half thousand years ago. Still worth a visit. Beautiful white building. Surrounded by cloister, full of statues of Buddha. Believe you can enter, if you fancy walking up all the steps.

Spectacular Wat in down town Phetchaburi. Definitely worth seeing. Phetchaburi is a great town to visit in Thailand to see something local and not too touristy.

The five white pinnacled stupas are very distinctive and a landmark of Phetchaburi. However, we were disappointed to see water animals for sale at the entrance gate (for example two fully grown frogs in a small plastic bag filled with water) which appeared cruel in...More

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.
