One of the most important temple in korat area. Well organized, have parking lots
Historic...but new...garden.flowers. waterfall. Play for children.colourful.in the nature.
The number of statues are located in the temple nearby the small river. Originally it is the place of grave for Suranarai Ya Moo and all mixed up with Buddhist, Hindi and Chinese religions. It may be the most popular temple in the korat downtown.
One of the unique oldest temple to visit once you have arrived at Nakhon Ratchasima. This temple is the one that own a historical of Nakhon Ratchasima. It is a little bit crowdy, if you plan to visit on holidays. Btw, recommended to visit with your mates or family!!!

A historic temple to visit.
Wat Sala Loi Temple situated in the North East part of the old town. It was built by Thao Suranari and her husband in 1827. It received the Siam Architects society award for the best Avant Garde religious building in 1973 ( Avant Garde meaning favouring or introducing experimental or unusual ideas, it originates from the french language ). The highlight of this temple is the meeting hall which is built in the style of a Thai boat riding the waves. The hall is decorated with local Dan Kwian clay tiles and depicts the life of Buddha along the walls. The huge door is made from metal. Inside the hall is a large Buddha statue. In front of the door is a sculpture of Thao Suranari sitting praying in the middle of a pond, besides the building is a small pagoda that contains the ashes of her. The temple can be found about 500 metres from the Rop Mueang road. So much was going on the day I attended here. Stalls were selling all kinds of things for anyone that wanted to offer prayers. Some stalls were selling food. The car park here was so full it was not easy finding a parking space. One thing that surprised me was, as I was taking videos and photos of all around the grounds a policeman stood to attention and saluted me and smiled. I thought it was a really nice gesture in this friendly city. In the grounds is a large pond with a bridge over it many people used this vantage point to get the really nice pictures of this beautiful Temple. Near to this pond a very large gong prompted people to ring it when passing. It surely is an unusual and beautifully designed Temple, not big by many temples but non the less worth a visit.
I love this place
Nice Wat . Nice small park inside the compound.
Many shrines within this one massive & very popular temple which is always busy.
A well known Buddhist temple in Korat
This place embodies much that is Thai in one location - Buddhist temple, prayer, paying respect, making merit, crazy bat man and super hero images, endless photo opportunities, fun day out with the family, lots of street food. Very modern temple architecture and minimalist but beautiful interior. Surroundings are like a small theme park with man-made waterfalls and lovely gardens. We visited on Sunday morning and there were hundreds of Thai visitors and staff organising car parking. Lovely place, definitely worth visiting.
