Interesting group of ruins. Has one Khmer tower still erect, worth seeing it. When here, make sure to visit Wat si chum, where there's a huge and amazing sitting Buddha. Also visit the new Wat Phra Pai Luang, where monks live and there's a golden...More

Not the most detailed ruin this one is one of easy quick visits of the many wats to see. Can be skipped if pressed for time but it is in the park so stop by to see it if not pressed.

This wat reminds me of some wats I visited in Ayutthaya where heads of buddhas are missing. I could not understand the reasons for removing the heads of these supposedly sacred figures! What I therefore remember about my visit of this wat is the presence...More
