Wat Trapang Ngoen

Worth a quick stop

What we say: 3 stars

This smaller site due west of Wat Mahathat is particularly photogenic at sunrise with the hills in the background that supposedly resemble a reclining Buddha.

Although there's not a whole lot to see, a well preserved Buddha image is found at the back of what would have been an enclosed temple, and there's a small but magnificent walking Buddha off to one side.

Trapang Ngoen means silver lake, a reference to the large pond with an island reachable by foot bridge in front of the monument.
