Wat Pho Ban Nontan information
Just off the lake, this peaceful tree-filled temple and noted meditation centre predates the city and has a săh·lah like no other in Thailand. The ground floor is covered with ingeniously sculpted trees, animals and village scenes of people acting out old Isan proverbs. There's also a small museum under the bóht (though it's often locked) and this is a great place for a Thai massage.
