Wat Sala Loi is an ancient temple located in Nakhon Ratchasima province, also known as Korat, which is approximately a 3-hour drive from Bangkok. The temple holds significant importance in Thai history, as it was constructed by Thao Suranari, or Khunying Mo, and her community after their victorious battle against the army of Chao Anouvong in 1827 (B.E. 2370). The temple was built following the conclusion of the war at Thung Samrit and during their march back from the city of Nakhon Ratchasima.

A mini temple wonderland. Lots of Buddhist temples, statues and deities to see, and worship if you are so inclined.
I went during a Buddhist holiday so the place was very busy with worshipers. Very interesting to see how people paid their respects.
Nice cafe situated in the middle of the complex too. Near the water fountain.
Worth a look.

The design of the main building and Buddha is really unusual. There is also a garden with superhero statues behind. Some of the statues look faded but that is part of the charm.

Wat Salaloy is a magnificent sanctuary and one of the great sights of Korat - both for worship and aesthetically. I really cannot understand the jaded expats for whom even this is not good enough. It's really a sacred ecotope, and for me the outstanding feature is the modern viharn with a really contemporary white Buddha. The most fun for me was feeding the koi directly, i.e. with a baby bottle rather than throwing food into the pond. :-)

I came here today and wasn't too excited by this temple. It's many small things to look at like little waterfalls and Buddha statues around. The main part isn't too big or that cool.

Wat Sala Loi is located northeast of the Khorat city ring. From the city it is a nice one-kilometer walk to the temple on narrow streets through a local neighborhood. The temple area is vast. You will find an artificial waterfall with flower decorations and beautiful ponds as well as life-size cartoon characters like Spiderman and Captain America. There are a lot of photo opportunities on the temple grounds. In one of the temple buildings there is a statue of ย่าโม (Ya Mo), the famous savior of Khorat against Laotian troops. There you get valuable information about the historical background, and you can also ask one of the friendly monks living in the temple about her life and her role in Thai history.

Though the temple itself is not old but it holds the famous statue of Lady Yamo who along with her band lady warriors cropped their hair to resemble men and fought fiercely the advancing burmese army. She is highly regarded as the saviour of Korat. The temple is well layed out with courtyards, prayer recital chambers and you will see a neverending line of Buddhist devotees paying respect to both Lady Yamo as well as Buddha himself. There are clean restrooms and even a tourist police booth inside the temple courtyard.A small buddhist zen park with water features is also present.
