This is a beautiful temple and very unique. Try to go right when it opens as it gets super busy! The actual temple is quite small but the grounds have lots of pretty buildings and sculptures.

This is one of my favorite temples, the drive is far but it was worth it. Our tour with Journey smile was fun, they took us to white temple, blue temple, rafting and elephant carer home.

The White temple is contemporary building, but looks loke historical place. Actually, it is over imagination, even build from concrete and plastic. Really peasfull, kalm, beautiful, with interesting statues, doors and pictures. A lot of flowers and water complete wholе picture.

This place is fantastic. Depends on your point of view I suppose, but as I said to my wife, "to me this is what modern art is, not random guys drawing portraits of themselves cutting off their ears". I believe this is the Taj Mahal...More

I have never known anyone to have done this .I expect special permissions would have to be obtained from both the Abbot and Chalermchai the artist.These permissions would probably take time and cost money.

Wait on main road for a 20B songtao to bus station. Then at bus station take another songtao to Ban Due (about 15-20B). Get off at road to Baan Daam, walk 1km.
