Wat Nakhon Nueang Khet in Chachoengsao province

Wat Nakhon Nueang Khet in Chachoengsao province
วัดนครเนื่องเขต (วัดต้นตาล) อำเภอเมืองฉะเชิงเทรา


Location:
13.7296892,101.047449 = 13°43'46.9"N 101°02'50.8"E

1.2 km by road north-east of hwy 304 (Suwinthatwong road ถนนสุวินทวงศ์), 6 km by road north of Chachoengsao ฉะเชิงเทรา railway station.

On a previous trip in Chachoengsao province, I drove past (on hwy 304) an entrance gate covered in brown tiles that raised my interest.


The gates gives an idea of the architecture and decoration of the wat, and indeed the ubosot is covered in brown tiles:
