“Beautiful and stunning scenery”
Review of Wat Pha Sorn Kaew

Wat Pha Sorn Kaew
Ranked #1 of 12 things to do in Phetchabun
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2017 via mobile

We drove from Chumphae to see this attraction and the drive out (120km)was just as stunning as the destination with nice winding but wide and well surfaced roads through the rain forest. If you are a motorcyclist you will love this road.

I thought the architecture of the Wat was stunning and very ornate. The standout for me was the five faces of Buddha.

It's well worth the drive if you are within a few hours of Petchabun.

We are lucky with the weather, the place is nice located in frond of the mountains, its something special and when you close to this place than visit this Wat Phra Kaeo.

You will not having the head as you normally will have in Thailand it's refreshing but still it can be hot in the sun.

Is this not a must to see! but nevertheless when you are in the area stop and take a look you will not regret this stop.

The drive alone would be a great day out; the scenery is amazing!
It is an incredible sight when you see the temple in brilliant white contrasting against the lush dark green of the mountains. The whole complex is a photographers dream and beautifully laid out from the entrance leading you to the temples and of course the temples themselves.
We all had a great day; if you visit Thailand you must come here!!!

I was in absolute awe as I approached this magnificent temple. It is unique and boasts incredible views of the mountains and jungle surrounding it. This temple looks as though Gaudi started playing around with Buddhism and Moroccan architecture. Incredible!
