Wat Khao Chawang

Wat Khao Chawang is not just a sacred site, but it is also an architectural phenomenon that leaves many in awe. It is the only temple in the area to have used wood as the primary material in its construction.

Many tourists and students visit the temple almost daily in order to see and learn more about this craft that is steadily declining. The Wat Khao Chawang offers invaluable insights into traditional design styles that are quite intricate and unique. You can easily find someone willing to give you a guided tour or explanations of these architectural wonders.
