This is a very ornate statue that you can get pretty close to and appreciate. There were people actively praying here.

If you take the classic boat trip at 4pm (200B per person) one of the shops is this temple with the very big golden Buddha. Entrance is 20B only.

An other good temple next to the river. 20 Bath per person. A big golden Buddha inside. Very quiet temple.
