Whilst this peaceful temple, situated atop an extinct volcano, has ancient roots – make sure you don’t miss the 8th- or 9th-century Dvaravati sandstone boundary markers – it is its modern additions that make Wat Khao Angkhan worth a visit.
Its eye-catching ordination hall and flamboyant side-buildings were erected in 1982 in red clay in an unusual nouveau-Khmer style. Inside, check-out the Jataka murals, painted by Burmese artists, which are accompanied with English captions.
