    A very special place. Beautiful trees and lush vegetation shade to compound from the afternoon sun. Young men training to become monks are numerous in number, studing, chanting, sweeping and keeping things clean. Being young men, laughing with eachother. Stray dogs have a home here, ancient ruins, beautiful place... fantastic.

    One particularly magnificent tree and a few historical ruins, combined with the theme of the snake, gave the place a serene, mystical aura.

    It is a very beautiful temple. Definitely worth a visit. It is located near a Thai neighbourhood and a jungle-like area. It is interesting to see the way the pagodas are build. They look old, and to us, jungle-like as well. It is very peaceful and quiet at the temple, because it is not crowded with tourists.
