En Kao Sa Pagoda
An archaeological site and a working Pagoda at the front. The local kids stream past the ancient temple ruins on their quest to get home after a long day at school.
The local monks are more interested in who is visiting their pagoda and occassionally come out to see. Otherwise it is a peaceful location at other times and worth the visit.
Dress respectfully of course as it is a religious centre in this area.
