“This Wat is dedicated to the dog (Year of the dog) - really neat free museum here!!”
Review of Wat Gate Khar Rnam

Wat Gate Khar Rnam
Reviewed 4 June 2015

My girlfriend loves dogs......so, naturally we had to visit Wat Gate. This Wat has statues of all sorts of dog breeds all around the grounds. The actual buildings, chedi's are pretty much typical of any other Wat in Thailand. What makes this one stand out is the museum on the right hand side of the Wat (as you are facing the front of the Wat). It's in a sort of rickety old building next to the restrooms. At first, I wasn't sure what the purpose of this building was. But it had a little stand to put your shoes on (no shoes allowed in the museum), so I decided to investigate. There is no fee, but there is a donation jar just inside the building. On display were a wide variety of oddities, textiles, old money (and new), weapons, old photo's, etc. I could hardly believe some of the items were not enclosed behind some sort of security mounts/cases and some that were - did not have locks on the cases. Pretty trusting place!! You would not find something like this in a museum displaying the same sorts of things in the USA. Very enjoyable time spent here!!
