Wat Cherngtalay has been the spiritual centre of the village for over 100 years (though it was relocated to its current location in the '70s). The temple consists of 5 large buildings – 3 of them dedicated to religious services, while the other 2 are the monks’ dormitory and their refectory.
Featuring traditional Thai temple architecture and decoration, Wat Cherngtalay also blends Buddhism and Hinduism. Inside the ordination hall, you can see a fresco depicting the life of Siddharta Gautama (Buddha). Meanwhile, outside the temple, a large painting represents Ganesha, the elephant-headed god of success and one of the most important deities in the Indian pantheon known as Phra Phikanet in Thailand. Mantras are all written in Sanskrit. Tranquil and beautiful, Wat Cherngtalay is a fine temple to visit in the Bangtao area.
