In between the quick-stop Three Kings Monument and the amazing Wat Chedi Luang, why NOT visit the old wooden Wat Pan Tao and see a slice of history?

This is an old teak Wat with nice grounds. They were working on the Chedi when I visited, there was bamboo laying everywhere! Still a pleasant stop.

This temple is a classic teak wood construction especially its roof structure. From the exterior, the woodworking is simple yet representative of the region. The interior, is the basic structure of teak wood vertical columns supporting the pitched roof.

To be honest I have no idea because I visited this place during the day time. But based on the information obtained during my visit, the lights are lighter everyday. The validity of the fact am not sure
