Nice small temple complex.
There were many different prayers which we could do thanks to our guide who explained the various prayers to us in english. I would recommend to take some one who can explain the various prayers which can be done here. My wife did 4-5 different prayers as our english speaking guide explained the rituals.

This very beautiful Wat was located near my guesthouse so I walked past it every day during my 5 day stay in the lovely town of Petchaburi...there are many Wats scattered all over town, but this one truly stands out, there's much to see both outside and inside, and on each visit I discovered new details

Phetchaburi is renown for its stucco work and the buildings at Wat Mahathat Worawihan have many splendid works on the outside. Don’t just go see the 5 prang stupa- LOOK at the buildings.

Temples abound in Phetachaburi. I am not sure what exactly made this more attractive to me than the others, but I very much found walking in its grounds very relaxing. Hot tip!!! In front of the temple is Nok Noi Desserts that opens at 6 pm. The traditional Thai desserts Nok Noi (that's the name of both the owner and the dessert place) serves were so good that we had to return one more time prior to leaving Phetchaburi.

This Wat comprises of five large prangs, a viharn, an ubosot, several chedis, the kuti and several other monastic buildings. Most eye catching are the five white prangs towering above the area, that are visible from much of Phetchaburi town. The temple is also known for its extensive fine stucco work. It is a busy temple where devotees make merit by burning incense sticks, offering flowers and applying gold leaf on Buddha images. Near the entrance a group of dancers and musicians performs wearing traditional clothing.

This is probably the most worthwhile of the city ways in Phetchaburi. There is a lot to enjoy here for the Thai art fan.

In the ubosot you find an attractive Buddha statue and a red wooden ceiling with chandeliers. The highlight may the stucco on the exterior.

In the vihaan you find exquisite Ayutthaya-style murals which are still vivid. They show battle scenes and street scenes from ancientPhetburi. There is a dharmacakra covered in gold leaf up front amongst a multitude of Buddhas.

Behind the vihaan is a splendid, five-spired prang which is an icon of the town.

Rating this a 5, because of the architectural dominance of this temple. The exterior is imposing; I found nothing really extraordinary inside.

This temple is slightly busier and sees more locals than the other temples in Phetchaburi. The tall prangs are rather impressive and there is a huge Buddha in the main building.
