We viewed this temple during our day trip with Mr Benz who knows his way around this area as he was born in Phetchaburi. Some interesting old artwork on the walls gives an idea of the age. Well worth a visit if you are in...More

Amazing temple and kind people. Amazing crypt at the back showing Buddhas. A must see. We took our 9 and 6 year old and thought it was good. We also bought water animals to release into Phetchaburi river.

Although we could see this fascinating place from in town, we were unable to visit as the cable car was broken. We were very disappointed as we had read about and could only see tantalising bits from a distance

Temples likes stand out. Almost same quality as Wat Yai in Phitsanulok. Very nice and authentic images and wall paintings. Amazing prangs. A beauty. Before you go you should Google a bit so you know what you are looking at.
