Wat Hua Khuang

Simple but photogenic

What we say: 3.5 stars

This pretty, centrally located temple contains two information placards within its well manicured grounds.

The first reads "No evidence of construction date known" while the second says "Assume built around 1525 AD". One goes on to note that there were renovations in 1882 and 1927, while the other specifies a single renovation in 1911.

We think they should take one of the placards down.

Placard argy bargy aside, the main point of interest here is the very pretty elevated wooden library to the left of the main wat. As you can't get inside there's little to do but snap a pic, and the main wat is unexceptional.

If you're staying in one of the central guesthouses, Wat Hua Khuang is just to the north of the National Museum.
