The temple is well-maintained, ample of parking inside the temple. Many ppl come and pray on Sunday, and festival. But I prefer to drop by on Saturday morning to pray, not so many ppl, I prefer some privacy when pray. There are ppl do meditation in the evening in the temple too.

The main shrine hall is an oasis of peace and calm (during weekdays). It's open everyday. In the mornings (before 12pm), there is usually a reverend monk in attendance who can perform a simple adhoc blessing service to whoever who request for it. (Warning: It's utter chaos during buddhist and chinese festivals)

A blessful chanting of monk from Thai temple amidst residential houses. It was crowded on new year day, parking within temple ground fully occupied. Many come to pray for a blessed new year. The temple is almost dirty years old and still in immaculately maintained. Fine golden gilded decor abound.

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.

We had the opportunity to take some time from our tour to pay respects and so happen, a monk was present to give us some blessings. The temple ground is quite pleasant to walk around for prayers. There are ample carparks inside the compound.
