An old Thai Buddhist Temple that enables you to step out of the bustle of a capital city. Gentle walks and statues that do not intrude. Buddhist architects seem to get it just right. Highly recommended.

When you enter the temple... More

It was not easy to find but it's quite an easy to go place if you has found it for the first time. Not a very big temple but has its own parking spaces. Chief Abbott can speak Malay and there is another monk who can read your luck and communicate in simple English.

this is a thai buddhist temple that was built way back in 1929. so it actually has a history of over 80 yrs there's also a little counter selling thai buddha amulets, but the seller was not ard when i was there. the chief monk will personally bless u and he is very earnest and serious.
