The temple is located at Ban Wang Khun. The mural and sculptural works of this temple is worth a visit. Crouching guardian lion replicas are on both sides of the stairway leading up to the Ubosot, ordination hall, with sculptures of men stretching their legs in front in front. Luangpho Phui, preceptor of the temple, created all of these sculptures.
Murals on four walls of this concrete ordination hall, both exterior and interior, features the peoples' lifestyle, history of the Lord Buddha, heaven and hell and folklore. The pictures are separated by the so-called Sinthao line, a flash-shape pattern which is widely found in murals from the Ayutthaya and Rattanakosin periods, not in the Isan region.
By the unique brushwork, the murals mirror freedom of the artist in expressing emotion into the pictures, trees and animals, like Western impressionists. The favorite colors include yellow, indigo, red ochre, green, blue and black.

How to get there From downtown Khon Kaen, visitors can go via Highway 2 (Mitraphap Road), heading to Amphoe Phon for 75 kilometres, then turn left to Highway 207 bound for Amphoe Nong Song Hong for another 17 kilometres. At kilometre 27-28, turn right at Ban Wang Khun and go ahead for a kilometre.
