Wat Chaiwatthanaram Reviews
寺院の目の前の通りには、貸し衣装のお店がズラリと並んでいます。着付けてもらった姿で寺院を歩けば、タイムスリップしたような感覚を味わえます。 more »The street in front of the temple is lined with the shops of the rental costumes. If you walk the temple in the form of getting dressed, you can taste the sensation of time slip.
Visited this temple in June. It was extremely hot so if you can schedule to a cooler month it would be more pleasurable to walk around. There are some restoration work on going. Very picturesque place... more »
Very impressive scale and of course interesting architecture and landscaping. They are ruins so done expect pristine condition but it didn't take much imagination to be impressed. If you're short on time I'd say it's ok to skip it for the more central locations but if you have the transport and especially a free morning to spare before the crowds arrive it's well worth a visit.
Worth going if you are in Bangkok. After having visited Angkor Wat I have to say I had great expectation for this place but it does not really compare as far as the size and quality if workmanship. The ruins are still very nice and one can appreciate the bas reliefs and stone work. Still a must stop.
