It's situated on the main Street . A huge statue of Buddha greets the visitors with peace and blessings. Not a very big temple but very beautiful considering the background scenery of the mighty rocky mountains in the vicinity .

Not too many people wander in and out...so it is a good way to lose the throngs on the main street..very photogenic.

I wouldnt have gone out of my way to visit, however its on the main street and can easy be accessed. Worth having a look and plenty of the children monks will welcome you.

We visited this Wat at twilight. There is a huge sitting Buddha image in the open at the front. The temple was closed so we just walked around the grounds and enjoyed the sunset.
