This is a wonderful Wat, located just off the Riverside area. A wander through the grounds and the monks quarters is a welcome respite from the noise and traffic of the rest of the city.

Very nice architecture though I would recommend only going if you're nearby. Not really worth its own trip. The tuk tuk drivers out front were particularly pesky; with multiple polite no's and no thank yous before they would stop pestering me with there details of...More
