Lonely Planet review

Down at the south end of the lake, Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon , the stunning stupa at the heart of this important temple, is Khon Kaen's one must-see. It features enlightening murals depicting Isan culture; various historical displays, including a collection of rare Buddha images on the 4th floor; and a 9th-floor observation deck.
