    I was at Wat Pratad Inkwaen (Golden rock temple) in Phrae and saw this listing of the 20 most Soo-ay temples in the land. I don't know who generated the list, but I realised that I've visited just 4 of them, so lots more to visit. Apologies for the poor photography, laminated sheets with reflections, I find tricky...

    Hi Goran,

    Thank you very much for that matey. While writing the post, I had made the mistake and corrected it, but the forum said multiple threads and deleted one. I hadn't noticed the updated one was deleted. It is now corrected.. I think...

    Wow, beautiful photos from you, Thanks. Those 2 temples look quite spectacular.

    Although, I love the old temples, personally. Wat SungKradai in Ang Thong looks wonderful, maybe I will get to see it one day. Looks like it is oozing history. I saw your photos from your visit there. Wonderful indeed.

    There must be hundreds of other temples too, that could be in a top 20 list. Seem to be so many beautiful ones around. Some are wonderful due to location, simplicity or age. I thought the above list was nearly all new or flashy temples
