Beautiful temple in the middle of town. Can’t miss it. I strolled from the far end of the river and passed by this temple. Go during the morning for the right light.

This temple is nice to see also in the evening so not only in day time. Very impressing need to see when you are in Nakhon Phanom.

Situated along the Mekong river walk. Very convenient to visit. The temple was all lit up at night. Very beautiful. It was open at close to 8pm, not sure hours. But can take picture even if the gate is closed.
