These ruins are a bit outside of the city past the old brick walls and moat. I walked from the bus station there in about 30 min (maybe 20). There is a small 50 Baht entrance fee but it is well worth it. The ruins...More

Near town center, in a pretty and well maitained park, it is one of the best sites in this lovely and modest town. The old stupa is in an excellent condition, serene, quiet, inviting. Worth a visit and worth the 50 baht entrance ticket.

Only one main structure in the old temple. However, you can see the most proportional structure, the most delicate looking, not bulky looking like the new era stoops.
