even this temple is not as famous and outside of historical park it is worth to visit - just few hundrets meters (really no distance by bike....) and relaxing as nearly no tourists here :-)

I often visit Wat Mahathat and I have never seen and have never heard of daily meditation classes at this ancient ruin. Just visit, sit and enjoy the peaceful surrounds.
