Actually the temple is just a few kilometres down along the way from Wat Maisuwankiri if you are driving from the opposite direction which most people do. And most tourist stops at Wat Maisuwankiri without knowing there is another beautiful Temple down the road. I suggest those of you visiting to proceed further down next time while you are there as Wat Chonprachumthat is less than 2 kilometres away and is worth the visit. You can even walk there.

It was almost 5 pm, while driving on my way back from a site visit along Tumpat road, I took a diversion along the road to Palekbang. It was quite windy, as such I wind down my window and had a slow drive while feeling the breeze along Sungei Kelantan.Then I came across a beautiful entrance with a Thai architecture of a Buddhist Temple along this isolated road called Wat Chonprachumthat at Kampung Dalam, Tumpat, Kelantan. Actually I have came here before long time ago, but with the donations collected, they have reconstructed the temple again from an old wooden temple. Since than, I have not visit the place again. And I am amaze the see the great changes.
