Walk to central bus station, but there are no buses to Baan Pue from this bus station. Take tuktuk 70 Baht 8:48-9:00 to Rangsina market ตลาดรังษิณา. Take van line 581 80 Baht 9:03-9:53 to Baan Pue. Walk and hitchhike (with a monk on a tuktuk, I offered to pay when we arrived, but he said it was free) to the wat, arrive 10:38. 

First building you spot is Ruan Kaew Phra Upakud เรือนแก้วพระอุปคุต.







This must be the ubosot, but I couldn't find sema stones:





Buddha statue in another building:



They are constructing a large sitting Buddha statue, but I wonder how they are going to lift the head to put in on the body.




But the reason why I went to this wat is the Buddhist hell garden:







Return to Baan Phue first walking, then being offered a free lift by an icecream mocy.
