Wat Thong Thua

Incorporating Khmer-style design elements, Wat Thong Thua is a temple that is best described as being antique. It has a rustic feel to it, almost as if you are being transported to a different time in history.

The temple has a vast collection of Khmer sculptures from days gone by. These include lintels, inscription stones and door columns made out of sandstone, with various designs carved onto them. After paying your respects at Wat Thong Thua, you can make your way to the Mueang Phaniat archaeological site; located close by, it features what remains of a religious sanctuary and offers more insights into the region’s rich heritage.
