The temple can be accessed via the stairs or a small railway train. You can see both are next to one another. As the stairs was a bit of a climb, we have decided to take the train.

The temple is large and you can visit a few floors.

At one floor, you have the life size statues of famous Buddhist monks. If I am not mistaken, the above is the statue of Luang Phor Khao, a famous monk of the Thai forest tradition (you can read/download his biography in this link). The wax statue looked very real… it is made with so much details that the eyes have expression and the veins also appeared on the hands. Really exceptional and skillful.

There are really a huge enormous selection of antiques that you can find on most of the floors.
