Wat Nong Wang isthe most famous temple in Khon Kaen. Located south of the city on Klangmuang Road, it is an impressive building with its 9 floors showing a bit of the culture, tradition and history of the temple, Buddhism and monks.
This is a must-visit for any stay in Khon Kaen. Especially because in addition to the building and its delightful colorful paintings, each floor has a balcony with floor mosaics representing animals (there even is a dinosaur). And the more we climbed the floors, the more we have a beautiful 360 degree view over the city and Khon Kaen's lake (Bung Kaen Nakhon lake) just opposite.
You can also find the name of Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon to call the temple like on the maps provided by TAT.
