Wat Mahawan was one of the few wats I swung by while walking around the city. Unless you’re a Thai temple enthusiast, there probably isn’t a need to go out of the way to see these. If you’re nearby, they are worth a quick look...More

Lovely environment and beautiful temples - can you see more of them? dress codes must be observed. Women not allowed into some of the temples. have to pay for all sorts of things. But very beautiful and appealing.
