  • I was surprised when standing front of this place. Good place to visit, especially in afternoon cause you can view river front of temple. Can enjoy the boat tour as well. In afternoon,time of sunset, you feel so peaceful when listen many birds's sounds back their nests. Peaceful in countryside! The attractive point in ancient capital!
  • Many visitors were wearing Thai traditional clothes that can be rented at the shops near the entrance (opposite the road). With or without the costumes, it is a great place for awesome pictures. The temple ruins are next to the river and I noticed some visitors arrived by boat. There are restrooms near the entrance.
