Set in the hills above the town, Intra Ngean Pagoda (also called Wat Krom) is a prominent historic and religious site for the region. Guided tours explain the significance of the reclining Buddha, as well as the meanings behind the colorful woven tapestries, fascinating statuary and smaller shrines. Monks still live and work at a monastery on the temple grounds. As at all religious sites, visitors should dress demurely.
