We wandered in here and had a stroll round. Much of it is enjoyable. Close to independence monument and easy to find.

Wat Lanka is a pleasant temple located near to the independence monument. It is fairly typical of the wats that you find around the area but has some historical significance. If you happen to in the area then it’s worth looking at.

Make sure to visit during the open sessions. The monks will give you a little guidance for your sit in this sacred space.
