Make sure you get there early! We came late morning just before noon on a Sunday and all the food stations were closing. I highly recommend this place but make sure you check the time and day you go so you don't get left out...More

Great place to spend time. Meditate, read, take in the water view. Sunday market is great, although a bit crowded nowadays. Fresh produce, plants and Thai food offerings. Santipap!

The temple and grounds are very interesting. On Sundays there is an amazing brunch buffet of Thai food. Seating is casual and may include other parties. Children can run on the large lawn.

Wonderful Thai food, especially the pork soup! Picnic tables by the water. Great people watching. Go early, (9:30-10) for best selections.

Such a beautiful location on the water if you manage to get there on Sunday for the brunch, get there early so many good delicious things for a very low price. Bring cash! Got some beautiful plants too!!

I did find this schedule. It appears that they do have a ceremony, so I don't think they are open as usual as this appears to be a ceremony for the monks. Perhaps you can call and check. I found this on their website. I hope... More

It's free! Obviously you pay for the food depending on what you get. You can respectfully enter the temple and little to a talk

I looked it up, and it said they were closed Christmas day, but they were open New Years Day. The reason they were closed on Christmas day is because they have many volunteers that help and they want them to be able to enjoy... More
