I approached and parked with rain threatening to fall. I began a walk around the temple complex.
There are a number of temples and pavilions and it had a very quiet atmosphere, at least on the day that I visited.
As I write this large parts of Thailand are under water and flooded. The river next to the Temple was in flood and obviously well above its normal height. Some areas were under water and what I assume were flow control barriers or mini dams were all totally inundated and overflowing.
At one stage I walked across a floating bridge and had to leap across a gap at the far end to make it to the temple at the end.

After the rain eased I made my way via a pathway back to the main temple complex and so to the Statue itself.
|Luang Phor Thuad - statue|
|Taksin at the charge|
I then wandered around the remaining area, checked out another temple, saw the statue of King Taksin the Great on horseback and basically called it a day.
The Bludger was hot sweaty and has pretty much had enough of Temples.
