Wat Pho Ban Nontan

Buddhist Temple in Khon Kaen

Just off the lake, this peaceful tree-filled temple and noted meditation centre pre-dates the city and has a săh·lah like no other in Thailand. The ground floor is covered with sculpted trees, animals and village scenes of people acting out old Isan proverbs. There's also a small museum under the bóht, and this temple is a great place for a Thai massage.
