If you were visiting Wat Chedi Luang, you should come and visit this wat as well. Why? because it is just on the right beside the Wat Chedi Luang.

Here you will see a nicely designed wooden wat with the Buddha Statue in it. In the main hall, it looks very beautiful with some kind of stings tighted and hanged up half way to the ceiling. When we were there, it was almost the time for the young monks to start their class. I saw monks aging about 5-10 sitting in the main hall while the elder monk leading the chanting. Well, it was quite an experience seeing them trained up to be so disiplined and obedient...
