    Wat Niwet Thamprawat

    by machomikemd Written Nov 2, 2013

    the Wat Niwet Thamprawat is a buddhist temple is just across the canal separating the main Palace Complex and is readily accesible from the big parking area outside the palace, where you will ride a motorized cable car to and from this disguised buddhist temple that is like a gothic christian church on the outside.

    why is this on the off the beaten path tips?

    because most ayuthaya day tours only allot 1 hour and 30 minutes touring around the palace and your tour guides does not mention this temple as it will eat much time in going to it as the motorized cable car can only accomodate up to 4 persons per trip. so only the local thais go to this temple across the canal.

    Pretty

    I found this out by just looking for some picturesque part of the place but we have different views in everything we saw and see and this one, I founf this one pretty cute at all. There are so many things to do in Bang Pa-in Summer Palace as I've said aerlier. And it's nice to stay for awhile and not in a guided tour! Opens every day from 08.30 to 15.30 hrs. Admission fee is 50 baht/person.

    Behind Wehat Chamrun you will find a highly decorated curved ceramic wall that is very worth your attention. Again the imagery is Chinese.

    A planter near Wehat Chamrun with a single lotus flower in bloom. Again the Chinese style is evident down to the red wooden base for the ceramic pot.
