We visited Phetchaburi immediately after some quite serious flooding and it was difficult to gain access to certain parts of this temple as carpets were being laid out to dry. However, the parts that we could see were lovely and there was an unusual wooden structure above the pond, the likes of which we did not see elsewhere in Phetchaburi.... More

One handed me a short guide to the temple written in English.... More

Petchaburi sees few tourists which is sad as it is a nice old town and this temple is a highlight. A great place to wander and relax. The main "bot" has some very old murals, lovely but in need of restoration. Other points of interest are the tiny wooden library over the pond (yes, it looks like an outside toilet)!... More

This was one of the larger Wats and was quite impressive but unfortunately many parts were closed off. Not being very adventourous we declined to open any of the closed doors
