Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wat Phra Borommathat Chediyaram is located at 16.479555 N, 99.510370 E 16°28'46.4"N 99°30'37.3"E in the Nakhon Chum neighborhood. The gorgeous golden chedi was built in the mid 19th century from the ruins of an original 14th century shrine. It is quite beautiful at sunset. Take care to avoid the packs of dogs at the temple. We witnessed two vicious fights in ten minutes. We carried sticks home after this. Often we take out full size umbrellas to confuse angry dogs by opening and closing the canopy quickly while pointing it in their direction. Kind people in the neighborhood called dogs away from us a few times. The residential area has loudspeakers that play nice traditional music for several kilometers. It is a pleasant and friendly community.

Very big temple and beautiful pagoda. There's a lot of pigeons, you can prepare some bread for bird feeding. Make sure to explore this place, there's a small museum inside.

Not a historical visit, really. However, it is a nice big golden building if you have not seen one before. A little walk around in the hot sun and a trip inside to see a place of worship. One nice shot of the whole thing from outside might be enough.

One of the most significant temples in the area. The beautiful golden chedi is said to house relics of the Lord Buddha, and people travel from far away to visit. The grounds are very nice and many buidlings recently built which blend in well with the ancient temple. The large chedi is lit up at night, creating a nice view from the city center on th eopposite side of the river.

According to Lonely Planet, "across Mae Nam Ping (river) are the ruins of Wat Phra Borommathat"... so I arrived with the expectation to see ruins similar to those in Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park. The first thing I saw when I arrived was a huge shiny gold chedi. I tried to walk around the compound, even to the river bank, to find ruins but I didn't find any. So I guessed the the huge chedi was the "ruin" that Lonely Planet talked about.

The huge chedi is very impressive, and there are small shrines and shops around the clean modern compound. This is a good place to experience local life as I saw locals coming to pay respects but no tourists. (I was probably the only tourist around.) The Wat is close to the bus station, on the opposite side of the river from the walled city.
