This is probably the most beautiful Thai temple in the Selangor /Kuala Lumpur area. Good for taking photos. Peaceful unless you visit during Wesak day. Note that your own transport is essential to visit this.

This temple is located among an housing area. It is however very beautiful and close to some of the famous temples in Thailand. This is off the beaten track for tourist to visit.

Busy during the weekends, parking will be a challenge. Was there during the mourning week of the passing of the Thai King. Complimentary bottles of mineral water was available. Shop available for amulets 'rent' in the term of Buddhism.
