Revisited Wat Uttamaram In Year BE2557 ~ The Temple Of Tok Raja LP Kron.

The famous Wat Uttamaram is one of the oldest Siam Thai temples in Kelantan. It is colorful with very old design for building ubosot of Wat Uttamaram. The temple is definitely a magnificent piece of building that is worth a visit besides viewing or renting of amulets or images. Each year, many devotees from around Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand will come to attend the temple festival like Kathina, Loy Krathong, Wesak Day, Saibat, Songkran, and so others.
