Presentation Wat Huai Kaew

Thai name : วัดห้วยแก้ว
My opinion:
Wat Huay Kaew is especially famous and interesting for its Khmer-type chedi planted in the middle of a pond. Built well after the Khmer period, it remains very pretty andnice to visit with a statue of Buddha in green jade and white jade inside. Very photogenic also with a drone (note that you have to declare your drone to be able to fly it in Thailand). The temple itself is said to be only 140 years old but the pagoda in the middle of the water in the style of the Khmer era, it is more recent (I could not find the information of its exact construction date) . This choice of architecture is linked to the way of life of the inhabitants of the Bang Kham canal.

if you can, also pay a short visit to Wat Phanit Thammikaram and its turtle-shaped base 18 kilometers away. Building's doors are often closed but it is its exterior that is quite surprising!

How to get to Wat Huai Kaew ?

Wat Huai Kaew is located in Ban Mi district about forty kilometers from Lopburi city. I think that there is no public transport to take you there. You will therefore need to have your own vehicle or hire a car with driver (see with the reception of your hotel). Note that there is a train station in Ban Mi but it is 5 kilometers from the temple and hoping to find a tuk-tuk there can be a little optimistic.
