Wat Sri Chum

Interesting Burmese-style wat

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

Wat Sri Chum is the largest Burmese-style wat in Thailand and until a tragic fire in 1992 was considered to be the most impressive one of its kind in the kingdom.

Construction of the original wat began in 1897 and following the 1992 fire a large reconstruction was undertaken. What resulted is an interesting small wat pleasant enough for a smooch around.

Unlike many Thai wats, this one boasts a lot of information in English. And if you're lucky one of the resident monks will show you around the enclosure.
