Their Sunday market is a great event. Really good good at exceptional prices. Nice setting on the water as well. Get there early as they do sell out

I've been here a few times and I get such a great experience each time. The food is cash only and inexpensive, but you have to get there early for parking and they only offer food on Sundays from 9AM-1PM. Such a peaceful place to visit. You get to eat along the river in the shade. I try to go back a few times a year.

Went here for the Sunday food market and was not disappointed! The atmosphere was peaceful. The food amazing! I will be going back when it’s cooler for that delicious looking soup.

The Temple rivals any we have seen around the world; it’s striking. Taking a few quiet moments is a calming experience even for those of us of different mindsets. The Sunday market is a big draw, of course, as it should be. Excellent food for the body and soul!

Our family went to the Temple last Sunday and had an incredible experience.

The time spent in the actual temple with a docent explaining the tenets of Buddhism made it a great trip. A beautifuly ornate alter and ceiling were a contrast to our Catholic Church. My three daughters were visibly affected by the beauty and solemnity. Fantastic experience.

The riverside grounds were covered with picnic tables and made a great setting to enjoy an authentic Thai lunch.

We had a nice noodle soup made by the monks, sticky rice, curry pastries, spring rolls, egg rolls, and coconut rice flower desserts. We missed out on the fried bananas because they sold out and chicken satay because we were too full.

It was literally too much to take in during one trip. We look forward to a return trip!

Good things draw large crowd. Get there early (9:30) to avoid parking issues and long lines for food.

Bring cash because credit cards are not accepted.

Wear appropriate attire if you plan on visiting the temple. They kindly ask for respectful attire; no shorts, sleeveless shirts, short skirts, hats or immodest clothes in their place of worship.

Definitely a must see place. Go, have fun and feast!
